The CEO Says…

What a year it has been for the Chrysalis Academy, its staff and students! From one of our graduates spending almost two months in London on a film course to the raging fires in and around the Tokai mountains in March 2015 and much, much more. However, I am pleased to say that we took everything in our stride! That is the foundation of our work – having an open heart to experience what each moment brings.
