Summer Course Feedback 2019:

“One of the best summer courses I have attended in a long time.”

“Loved the ease with which the facilitator shared the activities – in a knowledgeable, fun but focused manner. So much fit into the 5 days, which will be great to introduce to the class.”

“It was practical and easy to follow, while giving clear information on the essential learning goals. We learned activities which any child can be part of, promoting inclusivity and kindness.”

“I think it is one of the best qualities we teach and should be in the classroom.”
