Here are some of the testimonies from our visits:
"Thanks so much the workshop was brilliant. Your Educator Shona was amazing and all the children learnt so much in a fun, engaging and interactive way. Most importantly some excellent messages were given to support children in developing positive attitudes around diversity and help raise their understanding about the issues around racism. Such a valuable workshop which I would recommend to all schools.
Thank you so much!"
Ewa Wilson - Head of School
"The sessions were really well organised and run. There was a high level of participation from the children. I think that it was an incredibly beneficial experience for the children. Certainly Year 5 appropriate." - Teacher
