Guests' Farewell

  • PDF

Sadly, the Thursday Wolf Pack class had to say farewell to two of our long-term friends - Lochlan and William Guest. The boys will be heading off to live in Perth next week. They plan to continue their training with a WTF taekwondo school in WA. We all wish Lochlan, William, and their family the very best of luck. Don't forget to wear your Nepean Wolves caps, boys!
