What people are saying
The students and teachers were very impressed with Peter and should funds allow, we would like to have him back again next year.
I have received great feedback from both our staff and attendees about your classes and would like to thank you for sharing your expertise with us.
Richard was very generous with his time and his interaction with the students at our Readers Cup Regional final. His talk and question time were very entertaining and the students were totally engaged. I certainly would book him again and would recommend him to other schools.
We recently booked Andrew King for the Robotronica event at QUT Gardens Point. Andrew's storytelling style fitted perfectly with the First 5 Forever early literacy program. Andrew engaged in conversational reading with the children, discussed the illustrations, brought along characters from his books and encouraged the children to draw their own Bear Bot. He also brought along stickers and design paper for the children to use. I would recommend Andrew King to other organisations and would be onl [...]
We were fortunate to have Gwyneth and Megan present to our students here at All Saints as part of our biannual Livewire Festival this year. The ladies presented information about their books The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse, in particular the Queensland story. Their presentations were engaging and interesting. They really inspired students to reflect and write about their own travels. This impact continued throughout the semester. We would certainly welcome them back to our school.
Belinda’s presentation style was very suitable for our students. She connected well with all year levels and understood how to engage them. I was very impressed with her style personable and very approachable for students. I would welcome Belinda again to speak to our students.
Trevor was a warm and engaging speaker. The children enjoyed participating in his storytelling and learnt through this about his aboriginal heritage. He definitely met our expectations and we would recommend him to others.
We were delighted with Isobelle’s visit and would certainly like to have Isobelle visit again. We would certainly recommend Speaker’s Ink and Isobelle to other organisations and / or schools.
Thank you for the work you did with our girls yesterday. Students and staff alike loved your sessions, and all your books have flown out of the library doors this morning to be used in classrooms. Thank you so much!
Every high schoolboy needs to hear what you have to say about rites of passage and initiations. All parents and teachers need to hear your take on this, it’s insightful and challenging, yet refreshing to hear your openness. What amazing experiences and knowledge. Your meditation session was truly magical. That was the first time my mind switched off and relaxed during a session. Quietening a busy mind – that’s exactly what your workshop allowed me to do. I see that I need to learn to think an [...]
As always, Speakers Ink were very helpful in suggesting suitable authors, ...to suit our co-educational pre-prep to year 6 students at our school.
