Peter spoke at the children’s level when presenting and he had great resources for the children to look at. He also inspired the children to write very exciting stories when they came back to the classroom! We will definitely book him again!

Pete Carnavas was great! He worked with Year 2 and 3 students and he had them eating out of his hand. His presentation was engaging and the students were buzzing after his visit. Feedback from teachers has been very positive and they have commented about how inspiring his sessions were, motivating children to draw and write.

Thank you for your contribution to the very successful visit from Peter. The children were so engaged and clearly inspired, as were the teachers. We appreciate the thoughtful preparation, expertise and energy that Peter gives to his sessions.

Pete’s visit was fantastic! Such a great person and wonderfully received by the kids. He is definitely in our plans for a repeat visit and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to other groups.
