    Our students have been doing BHP for over a year. We have started with our second cohort this year. The scope and support for practical days is fantastic. The students love it and so do our teachers. When staff and students finish a practical day they are so elated with their work, that nobody leaves on the bell...everyone is still evaluating the day.
