"Marion is a supportive, fun and inspiring teacher"– workshop participant

“I enjoyed the storytelling. I loved all the fiction stories best. I loved listening to my classmates stories, they were so inspirational and enjoyable. Working on the project made me feel quite proud because I’d never done anything like it before. I am happy with the work and stories I have made. The achievement feels great and I would love to do it again”– Eli, St David’s Primary

“You need to practice your lines and to have expression in your face to be a good storyteller. If I did the project again I would like to write longer and longer stories. I really enjoyed the storytelling very much.” – Dora, St David’s Primary
