The workshops proved to be an effective way of enabling us as a County Council, working in partnership with Veolia, to deliver the ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ message to the schools. Using this creative delivery method there was great potential to spread the message not only to the children involved in the workshop, but also to their peers watching. We are confident the messages learned will be passed on to the parents at home too.
The workshop leader demonstrated enthusiasm and commitment to the pupils at all times, she was attentive and flexible in her approach leading the children in a friendly and professional manner. All pupils were listened to and suggestions made were used effectively, allowing pupils to take ownership of the production and be in control of their own work.
Konflux Theatre in Education is a unique way to engage and motivate pupils, it was great to see them grow in confidence as they progressed through the day. Their involvement in the workshops and the final performance will be an experience I think they will remember for many years to come.

The children thoroughly enjoyed their drama day and surprised themselves that they remembered lines and had the confidence to perform. The drama workshops and scripts were pitched perfectly for the children and they had a brilliant day! It was great that they were able to perform to the school and their parents and they learnt lots more about the Olympics.

Matt energised and entertained an entire key stage. He used a range of subjects including Literacy, History, popular culture, sport, teamwork and of course, drama. He was particularly effective with some of the Y6 children who might have been less enthusiastic following SATs. Matt was flexible and worked around the needs of our school. Matt came to our school loaded with ideas, energy and enthusiasm. This proved to be a contagious mix which inspired all the pupils across a very wide range of abilities. He got everyone working and brought out some brilliant performances from some unlikely places! His management of a large group of children was exemplary. We will certainly recommend Konflux and in particular Matt Driver to other schools.
