What the teachers said about the Forces show
Thank you very much for an educational and fun filled two days Mick. The kids really enjoyed your shows and were trying out the ruler experiment, many rulers are now resting in peace.
As usual it was most educational for everyone & entertaining. It is so easy to organise. Friendly and it all works like a dream. Thank you.
The staff feedback has been great. Teachers were really happy with the content.
Mr Doyle always puts on a great show for the kids. Even on Friday afternoon!!!!!
