Feedback from Teachers

"Excellent presentation – thoroughly enjoyed by students and teachers."

"The workshops were presented very well. The way the students were able to interact with the ancient artefacts was excellent.”

"The day was interactive, engaging and extremely relevant to our unit of study. Students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the program and particularly the hands on nature of each activity."

"Our students don't have the opportunity to study ancient history so they really enjoyed the exposure to it! In some students fostered a love of history and in other sparked a genuine interest!"

“The students had a wonderful day – thank you. The sessions were purposeful and interesting."

"The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we look forward to visiting again next year."

“We have experienced the workshops for a few years now, and the students always come away with valuable information.”

"Excellent assistance in booking and organising our visit - could not speak highly enough of how prompt and accommodating staff were."
