Presentation Reviews:

Fantastic resources. Kids were very engaged (Year 5 & 6)

Very informative for students. I loved the resources that you brought in, great visual for kids. (Year 1)

The presentation was very informative and engaging. Great safety message. A picture book with a message is fantastic for all ages, it’s a big thing for kids to hear the book read by an author. (Year 5 & 6)

One of the best talks we have every had. Nobody talked during your presentation, you could hear a pin drop in the room! (Probus)
