We ask teachers to complete an evaluation form when they visit. Here are some of the comments that we have received:
Loanhead Primary School, September 2019 "Childen very engaged and obviously learning so much from this. Great fun! All the leaders very helpful, patient and informative. Thank you! A superb visit."
East Calder Primary School, October 2019 "A very valuable learning experience that we cannot provide in a school setting. Children leave every year 'buzzing' with excitement with the clear message from each scenario staying with them."
Longniddry Primary School, October 2019 "A fantastic, highly relevant experience for P7. Really realistic situations, delivered in an engaging way. Thank you."
Liberton Primary School, November 2019 "Once again a really fantastic morning. Interactive and effective. Knowledgeable staff inspired the pupils to think and discuss."
Alva Primary School, December 2019 "Amazing trip. Thank you to all the volunteers who made this trip such a valuable experience for our pupils."
Lasswade Primary School, January 2020 "As always a really engaging experience where pupils can interact safely and learn without real consequences. Shocks pupils and makes them think about their actions and the actions of others."
Sighthill Primary School, March 2020 "As always this is one of the highlights of our year in P7. The children always learning something important."
We also welcome feedback from the pupils, here's just a few:
