The Culture Club incursion was FABULOUS! Emma was engaging and was fantastic with the students. They learnt a lot and had so much fun whilst doing it. I have even mentioned to Emma that Year 2 Australian Curriculum links directly to her program so it would be fabulous for her to do more school incursions!Thank you so much, we will look forward to doing it again next year!

I'd heard how terrific it was from one of our services during our visit and this afternoon I was able to make my way out to Palmerston to see the workshop taking place and GEE! It was terrific! I didn't get her name but the lady who delivers the workshop is amazing, her energy is consistent throughout the 2 hours and she definitely engages the children throughout the whole time. If there is anything else that she does, we'd love to have her back!
