She provide students with information and electronic versions of school documents, she also sets up meetings, organises agendas, takes minutes and circulates information after meetings.


When I embarked on this field of study, I had no idea of the profound effect it would have on my life in every regard. I have learned so much in a completely holistic sense and in so doing I have learned about myself and my own values. This course is not only about studying the fine art of homeopathy, it is about life. This course has led me to places I could never have imagined for myself, plus I have had a lot of fun in going there!
