Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

I can’t wait to come back and work with the children and staff in the future. During every session the children were exceptional and a real credit to the school.
