"Lots of good feedback yesterday. All of the educators engaged really well with the children which is really important. Activities were really good and enjoyable.
Thank you so much, we would welcome you back willingly!" - Teacher from Edwinstree
"I just wanted to say a really big thank you to you, Francis and Manisha for your delivery of the 'Show Racism the Red Card' educational workshops for our Year 4 and 5 pupils. It was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to develop a deeper understanding of racism and how it can affect others. The sessions were thought-provoking and generated some excellent discussions. The teachers thought it was a valuable workshop for their pupils to participate in and the pupils clearly enjoyed them. It was lovely to welcome you all to our school and hope that you will be able to visit again. Please pass on my thanks to Francis and Manisha."
