WHAT PEOPLE SAY

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

St. Mary's Dandenong

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Brent, your enthusiasm was infectious and the students absolutely loved the four experiences you set out. 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. Thanks so much, we will definitely look to use you again in the future and will spread the word where possible.

Penshurst Public School

Brilliant! Brent's approach was very child centred and the content of the incursion fitted perfectly with our program content. Brent and his assistants really engaged with our students and took the time to explore movement with them in each of the toy play stations. Thank you!

Kingsgrove Public School

The students were highly engaged and they were able to recall many of the learnings of the session, not just the activity. Thank you very much for re-arranging the time and being flexible.

St. Richard's Primary School

Absolutely. We were amazed at how well the students participated in the three activities we chose for the day, especially the Hip Hop session. We had a fabulous day. Melissa was wonderful with the kids. It was great to join in with the activities. We would have you guys back in a flash. Thanks for an amazing experience.

St Margaret Mary's

The Incursion most definitely engaged our usually difficult to engage students, mainly because its very hands on and 'fun' for the students. I think Billy Carts was one of my own and the students favourite incursion so far. They had a fantastic time participating in the activities and riding their own Billy Carts.

Sirius College

Brilliant! Brent's approach was very child centred and the content of the incursion fitted perfectly with our program content. Brent and his assistants really engaged with our students and took the time to explore movement with them in each of the toy play stations. Thank you!

Team Building  ~ This is the third year we have booked this incursion for our grade 1&2 and it was brilliant. Mel was amazing. She knew exactly how to run the session. The teachers enjoyed it as well and were able to make many interesting observations. Thanks
