Clare Entwisle - Principal

Kew High School
"Thank you so much Elaine for your time and expertise.  The children have been so engaged and enthusiastic throughout the course.  Their Confidence has definately improved.  Their debates were fantastic".

Geraldine Worm 5/6 Teacher

St Bernadettes Primary
"Joel enjoyed your debating sessions so much. He had no idea what debating was about before you showed them “the ropes”. He really looked forward to the final “big debate” and showed a level of confidence towards public speaking he didn't have before.  So, a big thanks for doing that for the school/kids, it really enhances the extra-curricular opportunities for students".

 Frank - Parent St Anthony's Primary

A new level of confidence
  "Just passing on my gratitude for the great work you did with the year 11 students in preparing them for their leadership speeches to their peers.  The speeches were a significant improvement on previous years with students all adhering to their allotted times and speaking confidently".

"This was a really worthwhile and helpful experience for the students, bot for the less experienced debaters and the more experienced ones.  Elaine's enthusiasm and knowledge was fantastic!"

Catherine Barker, Teacher Simonds Catholic College

Worthwhile and Helpful for all debaters
"Many thanks for all of your work with the debating team.  My son's self-confidence not only in English but also in general has improved dramatically.  Sometimes a few key people can make a big difference in kids lives.  You certainly have".
