St Columba’s College engaged the services of Mr James Aforozis and his team at Alec Epis Cleaning Services in July 2013. The College required a cleaning team that would be committed to excellence and continual improvement of how the cleaning services would be delivered. Taking pride in St Columba’s College’s image a reputation is an essential expectation of any service provider the College engages with.
