Here are some of the testimonies from our visits:
"Just wanted to give some quick feedback about the SRtRC workshops this week.
Staff and pupils all felt it was fantastic - particularly in years 5&6. Kevin, Francis & Lionel were outstanding yesterday, the pupils were in awe listening to them and the topics inspired debate amongst the staff as well as pupils.
The Year 4 sessions were good, Shona and her colleague (sorry can't recall her name!) were inspiring and led the sessions well, although the teachers felt there was bit too much sitting still for the younger pupils.
In all, we were really pleased so please pass on our thanks to everyone involved."

"I thought it was a BRILLIANT day out, one of the best I’ve been on. The ladies who took the session were excellent and got people involved, and they gave me some excellent ideas for future training / presentations to school kids, and in the car on the way back the three of us were discussing everything we had done."
