With an unrivalled team of quality educators and performers (see Meet Our Team), we can re-design our programs to meet the needs of individual schools. Anything from a single presenter running a single class through several activities, to a team of eight or ten running entire year levels through several days of activities.
Our emphasis is always on giving the students hands on interaction with the topics, in a way which allows them to interpret the period clearly. They rotate through ‘active’ all participate sessions; and ‘passive’ watch and learn through role-play sessions; and ‘interactive’ taking turns segments. That way we can balance their attention to preclude over-stimulation or boredom.
Most of our sessions are designed for individual class groups, or a maximum of 32 participants. We have a few topics suitable for larger groups (and are willing to start or finish a day with large group sessions); but prefer not to run whole days without small group interaction activities, which we think give better educational value.
“A great morning. The interactive nature of the activities is ideal for boys of this age… We’ll be booking again!!” Alan Bliss – Melbourne Grammar
It is particularly important to us that many students who do not cope well with traditional ‘blackboard’ learning, respond enthusiastically to the multi-sensory and kinesthetic components of our programs. Many schools have commented on the number of‘difficult’ students who rave about our visits.
“I was particularly pleased to see those non-academic students and those with special needs (an autistic boy) actively engaged. I have never seen a particular student smile and he was grinning from ear to ear during the tournament!!!” J Heim – Viewbank College
We measure our success by how many good questions the students can ask during and after our activities.
