The Bright World Head Office team (above) were delighted that so many of our partner schools, host families, drivers and friends came along to help us to celebrate the opening of our new office premises at Forge House in Hurstpierpoint on Friday, 16th March.
Guests arrived at 1pm and were treated to a champagne reception with Chinese canapes and a chocolate fountain. While the music played, Heads and Registrars of our some of our closest partner boarding schools representatives had the chance to meet the Bright World team, our Local Coordinators, host families and drivers who all make up the important elements of our agency and guardianship service.
