WHAT PEOPLE SAY

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. :)

Glen Huntly PS

The students loved Brent's presentations. They were thrilled to see him a second time ( 1st time 2 months ago). Not only did he keep the activities and presentation interesting, he also built rapport with the children and even remembered student names from last incursion.

Oakleigh PS

Ryan was fabulous, he engaged the students and had them excited to learn. The incursion was a great introduction into circuits and the students where buzzing with their learning back in the classroom. Thanks you!

Antonio Park PS

All students were engaged with fun hands-on outdoor activities. The small compass was a great bonus for students. Some of my students used theirs during lunch break and had more practice at using compass. Thanks heaps!

Darul Ulum College of Victoria

We LOVED it! So relevant to our Science topic and so much fun! Andy was very professional and engaging and the kids were on a high all day. Thanks again!

The Prep children had a fantastic session with the variety of toys. Their interaction reinforced the learning areas we were working through, such as movement, materials, texture and so on.
Thank you for an enjoyable and worthwhile session.

Knox Gardens PS

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Brent who came to our school earlier this week to do the Billy Cart Incursion. Brent your enthusiasm was infectious and the students absolutely loved the four experiences you set out. The majority of students had never heard of a billy cart, let alone had the opportunity to ride on one, so this was a massive thrill for them. The feedback from all of the teachers involved was positive and they noted how well you explained the ins and outs of a billy cart to the students. In addition, your detailed explanation of how each of the four stations would work allowed students a smooth transition from one activity to the next. Thanks so much, we will definitely look to use you again in the future and will spread the word where possible.
