What is a blog you may ask? Basically, it’s a sort of online platform to share information. The Yorkshire Insight is another tool for us to post parent education news, student’s writings, Yorkshire parent’s expertise, or just to take a deeper look into what’s happening on and off campus.
What are the rules for our blog? Really, our hope is simply that the information we post is relevant, entertaining, and helps to convey the essence of what makes Yorkshire… Yorkshire.
