Thrilled with the preparation Prue put in to making her workshops very engaging and interesting for our students. For the senior students Prue wrote a first chapter to a novel from which they had to develop a back story on a character of their choice. With the junior students she was equally engaging and they all ended up creating their own story with her guidance. The commentary afterwards from students was that they all learnt a great deal about story writing techniques. I found Prue very ac [...]
Tristan spoke to our Year 8s as a cohort, as well as running workshops about writing a crime story, their assignment this term. His sessions were well-paced, moving from speaking to book readings, commentary to student response with humour thrown in as asides. Tristan is a speaker that teens relate to. His workshops gave our students gave our students many valuable writing tips.
This entire week has been an outstanding success. Thanks to Anne, who has been instrumental in the delivery of the workshops. There was this incredible energy throughout the school and all these wonderful people helped create the oeuvre of joy and creativity in the kids. We were all touched by their presence and skill and collectively, as a community, we felt honour and privilege. All the feedback has been incredibly positive from children, staff and parents. Anne has been an excellent ambassado [...]
The students thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and were enthralled by your caricatures. We have had parents visit us to say that it was all the dinner conversation rotated around that evening as the students were so captured by your visit. I thank you once again for your time, effort and enthusiasm in your presentation.
It was such a pleasure to have you here. Our students have been truly inspired by meeting you and hearing you talk about your writing. It is so wonderful to see our students so excited about their education. Many of our budding writers spent their weekend finishing / polishing their writing works. I have also received positive feedback from many of the teaching staff who came to see you talk to the students, they were very impressed not only with the content of the presentation but also in you [...]
Tamsin was fabulous. Her openness and warmth engaged the students from the start. She shared the experiences that have shaped her as a person and those that inspired the rich and vivid stories she has created. Here is an author who deeply understands children and naturally inspires a love of reading and writing.
Personally I found Nadia a delight to spend time with and admired her energy and enthusiasm for the task at hand. She had the audience in the palm of her hand from outside the entrance door right through to the end. I also know that Nadia impressed organisers with her positivity, flexibility and interest in what was wanted from their performances. Feedback was audiences was extremely positive at all performances – with one glowing appreciation letter from a parent appearing in the local newspap [...]
Absolutely brilliant! James was entertaining, inspirational and appealed to all levels from Kindy through to Year 6 and the staff! Highly recommend James!
I would not fault the service provided from Speakers Ink. The communication and booking process was well organised and very professional. I would not hesitate to book through them again. A very credible organisation - thank you, very happy!
Lorraine was a fantastic speaker. She gave the students ideas of how poets work and ran a workshop to practise the skills, so there was a good balance between the theory and the practise which is better for primary students. Her introductory session was also informative and her reading of the poems was good. Just having the opportunity to meet a writer and poet is an experience too.
Simon was great . He manipulated his presentations to the age level and composition of the audience and handled both the 130 students presentation and the 50 students equally well. Would definitely get Simon back next year again if he’s available.
