Thank you so much for Thursdays play in a day on the Olympics. Carly was fantastic. The students were all engaged throughout the rehearsal process and managed to achieve a superb performance in a very short space of time. We used the performance as a formal assessment for the students which will complement their BTEC in performing arts. Please pass on my thanks to Carly who really was superb and made the whole day run like clockwork. I look forward to working with konflux again in the future.

“The day was really good, well organised and I loved how the whole school could get involved! You are on to a winner with this British Values workshop! It is very difficult to find something that takes it seriously. We have visitors from all different faiths and it was nice to show where British traditions come from. It got the students thinking about Britain and it celebrates diversity!”
"The children had a brilliant time and learnt a number of things from the experience including voice projection, presenting, team work and collaboration as well as some interesting facts about British values and the origins of some things we have always thought of as British. It was a great starting point for more in depth learning about being British."
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.
