Here are some of the testimonies from our visits:

 

“The discussions they had were excellent, justifying their opinions and even gave them a platform to disagree with each other respectfully”

 

“Please thank the staff for yesterday it was a great success and the children and staff got a lot out of the experience”

 

“It was amazing to see the children's reactions to racism. A lot of them were questioning why people were racist, which showed a shift in society with younger children knowing at a young age to treat everyone nicely and with respect.”
