Impact/Testimony

“The project became a catalyst for the successful teamwork of this group and their integration into the Year 9 as a whole. It was evident from the final film product that students had developed empathy with the adults they interviewed. Their interview skills were astounding. An astounding success and a wonderful example of partnership under Jo Wilson’s expert guidance and close sympathetic relationship.”
