I am writing to thank you for the "Play in a Day" workshop your company ran for us yesterday. The practitioner, Sara, was outstanding - she was friendly, professional, had great behaviour management skills and a creative and effective way of working with young people. I can honestly say this is the first time in a long time that I have had a practitioner in school who genuinely is worth the money! The play that our students developed and performed was fantastic and enjoyed by all the year 9s and 10s who watched it and most importantly the performers were really proud of what they did.

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 workshops meant there was something for everyone, from nursery up to Year 6 and the work tied in brilliantly with our story week. We all had a wonderful time and learnt lots we can use in our own teaching. Thank you once again, Konflux, the visits were very cost effective too for smaller schools.
