"The students really engaged with Michele's workshop and loved answering her questions while equally challenging her with more, to which she always had the answers. It was pitched perfectly for our first years and they were able to draw in on topics they had covered in science and geography, making it more relevant." (Community Environment Action Fund 2020)
"Such a professional workshop- all methodologies used . Pupils were actively engaged at all times. Teachers involved cannot praise enough." (Community Environment Action Fund 2020)
"The children had very little background knowledge on biodiversity but when the speaker left the children had lots of info and knowledge on the topic. They enjoyed it and found it interesting". (Mary, Clonmacnoise N.S., 2017).
"This was an excellent engaging workshop. Michele held the children's attention throughout and interacted really well with the various activities. It was very informative for both adults and children". (Valerie, Cloghan N.S., 2016).
