"I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism, approachability and enthusiasm with which you all presented today. Many staff commented to me about your presentations and the students had a great time in each of the sessions. I think the expert knowledge, combined with an interactive approach to covering content as well as the practical ‘out of your seat’ elements of every session are the real strengths of your presentation."

"The professionalism of the team was fantastic - it was well organised and, most of all, the students had a great time. They were able to reinforce a lot of their classroom learning with the sessions that were held on our Medieval Day. If you are looking for a different way to jazz up your Medieval unit, then here it is!”

They were completely engaged throughout the entire time, and the way in which you present and completely absorb them into the historical periods is a true testament to your passion, knowledge and delivering of the topics!!

Debbie Bretherton - Frankston High School
In previous years students visited Kryal Castle which has only been able to offer a small scale programme for students. For the last two years, the College has utilised the services of a group from Melbourne who have successfully presented a range of activities for the boys to experience. Titled “History Up Close”, the programme has involved instructors taking boys through a range of activities pertaining to life in Medieval times including music and dance, arms and armoury, heraldry, costume and games. Students enjoyed the day immensely with all getting into the spirit of the day by wearing their own version of medieval clothing.
