 “…exactly what we needed as a start to our unit on the human body.”

“I have to say the workshop was perfect, exactly what we needed as a start to our unit on the human body. The children learnt so much, in the one hour session, and were given just enough information to start their inquiry project this term. The presenter was so energetic, bubbly and full of life.  She was excellent with the students! I was extremely happy with the workshop and have recommended to other teachers, so thank you again!”

“… the workshop made the link between what an unhealthy body and a healthy body looks like.”

They learned a lot and have been talking about it for the rest of the week. We were also impressed with the way the workshop made the link between what an unhealthy body and a healthy body looks like.

This incursion was most appropriate for our kindergarten level and addressed our needs as far as the PD curriculum went.”

Kingsley Park Primary School

“…a brilliant way to introduce our theme of the sea to children…”

“The Under The Sea drama workshop was a brilliant way to introduce our theme of the sea to children in grades prep-2. The children were able to be involved in a story that was related to the conservation of the sea and enabled them to become part of the actual story which helps younger children to have a greater understanding of these concepts. The costumes were bright and colourful and the teacher engaged the children easily. We will definitely use The Drama Toolbox again and recommend it to others.”

“…a great enrichment activity…”

“The ‘Under The Sea’ workshop was a great enrichment activity to complement our integrated unit of study. The students loved the opportunity to explore dance and drama wearing colourful costumes. This workshop was a fantastic stimulus for speaking and listening outcomes to help develop students’ awareness of spoken language. The workshop also provided many opportunities for students to write simple texts in informal and formal situations. The ‘Kidz Fantasy Circus’ and ‘Dinosaurs’ workshops were also terrific and really enjoyed by all students and staff.”
