Konflux Theatre has worked with our school on many occasions and all of the experiences have been consistently exceptional. We rebook this company often because we are assured of the standard of delivery, and we also like the ‘play in a day’ format, which not only exposes our children to drama techniques but also allows them to share these skills with peers.

The children learnt to use and apply new skills associated with drama and to work co-operatively with children they do not normally work with to produce an end product that they shared with their peers. We felt that it went a long way to raising the children's self-esteem and made them realise the importance of being an active listener. We were very impressed with the information that was supplied prior to our booking the work shop and how flexible the company was in meeting the needs of our school. Our instructor was able to identify the children who needed TLC and those who would be prepared to take on a more challenging role in the production as well as those who needed challenging to raise their self-esteem. She managed to engage with all the children and ensured all the children were active participants in the play.

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.
