WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Today we had Amy come to do the Billy Cart program. Our Year 4 students loved it and were totally engaged. Amy was fantastic with the kids and highly organized. Thank you!

Michelle Fernandez

I am continuously amazed by the commitment, engagement and presentation by the talented staff and leaders of Supreme Incursions. The leaders present with an extremely high level of interest for the children's participation - they always want to have the best experience possible. The combination of having a learning experience as well as a fun time is very well balanced.

Thanks to Mel for being such a wonderful teacher throughout our sessions. The students loved the experience and I had parents telling me this morning about the precious crystals their children had brought home and how special they were to them! It's great to know that they will remember the experience and have a vice to use to bring them happy thoughts in times of sadness/anger! Thanks again guys, hopefully we will have a unit next year that will be enhanced by one of your programs again.

All of the grade fours loved the Billy Carts incursion today! Andy was a great presenter and the students thoroughly enjoyed all of the rotations. They consolidated their learning in a fun and interactive way! I have written a blog post for my class blog about the incursion if you'd like to look at it http://missjordan.global2.vic.edu.au/2014/11/21/billy-carts-incursion/ Thanks for organising the incursion for us!

Once again Supreme Incursion have provided our students with an engaging, hands on session with Silly Science. All of our Prep to Year 2 students absolutely loved it, the teachers loved it too! A very BIG thank you to Ryan for all of his expertise. :)

Just a quick note to say how fantastic Ben was yesterday at running the Making Recycled Instruments incursion at St Theresa's.
The kids were so engaged and the content and discussion has acted as a springboard for them to take into further learning.
Thanks once again!

It was a very engaging experience for our students, particularly those students typically difficult to engage.

Ian, the instructor was extremely professional and we all enjoyed the incursion that he ran.

Aspendale Gardens PS

All the students loved the activities, and staff enjoyed seeing different strengths emerge from individuals that don't always appear inside a classroomcontext. A few students found the team building activities challenging, but the staff managed it all really well, and students stepped through someof their issues/mindsets to then experience team in its many different forms. It was excellent. We really liked how a few 'camp twists' were includedin the Team Building activities (the race at the end), and also how some tasks were further altered as the students are at the end of Grade 2 (theblock/swamp activity). All staff at Supreme Incursions are terrific to work with, and your approach and enthusiasm makes the entire process from start to finish, smooth and enjoyablefor all involved. Thank you for a brilliant two days.
