Testimonials

Teachers:

 I just wanted to express my gratitude for such a wonderful program. Sue (Leblanc) was amazing and opened up our students and teacher’s minds. It is wonderful to see a child’s confidence grow over the course of time. Thanks so much for coordinating this project. It is so worthwhile.

We really enjoyed working with Raquel (Duffy) and found her to work extremely well with the kids. She made our show a great success!

Students:

I never thought I’d ever dance in front of people. It’s hard but felt great and I feel more confident.

- Cheryl (Student, North Colchester High School, CCRSB)

We never did theatre before. It was really great and I learned a lot. I’m going to do more at Neptune Theatre School because I love it now.

Thanks for knocking out my fear of speaking by myself. I was the narrator in “The Fire Bringer”.

Workshops:

The workshop was a brilliant success. We did the evaluation forms together some weeks later. What a bonus that turned out to be! I heard from the children about what had remained with them over a length of time. Patrice really made a delightful and positive impression on them. This was such a success, I hope we can build on this in a few years’ time.

Stop Bullying:

Yesterday, Stacey Smith came to our school for a three hour session on Bullying. She was amazing! I would like to thank you for being there and allowing students in a Rural community to be part of something wonderful- a real actor came to our school! Stacey handled a difficult large group with ease and true professionalism. It is sometimes a risk to bring people in to a high school setting, as many people find this age group rather daunting to say the least. Stacey seemed gifted in her ability to handle these teenagers and was able to get the best from a very tough group. Please know that your organization was well represented by her visit and that we really appreciate her fantastic workshop. We will continue to work on the work she started. We look forward to our next visit. This is such an asset to the education system.

- Katherine J. Coutts (English & Drama Teacher, Hants East Rural High School, CCRSB)

Getting the chance to learn about why bullies exist and what I can do to make sure it doesn’t happen at my school was great. I learned a lot. Thanks!

- Jennifer (Student, Scotsburn Elementary, CCRSB)
