Today, myself and my team we were lucky enough to welcome Kate to the Prep School to present 4 workshops on the Science of Sound to our Year 1 students. I just wanted to write and express my sincere thanks to Fizzics Education for being so accommodating of our changing schedules, and also to praise Kate for her wonderfully engaging, informative and interactive presentation. The girls were beside themselves with excitement and not only responded with great enthusiasm to Kate’s positive energy, but learnt so much about sound. Kate had a delightful manner with our girls, was patient and exuberant, and the girls had an absolute ball! Please pass on my sincere thanks to Kate for her flexibility on such a topsy turvey day, and for energising our girls for their learning about Science.
Today we have been hard at work preparing for our new STEAM program!
With some excellent training from Fizzics Education & we have some very exciting new experiences coming soon!
On behalf of the Events team, I would like to extend our thanks for all of you who were able to assist us at the Western Sydney U Day events last week at our Parramatta South and Kingswood campuses. Both events were a great success, despite the heat and smoke, and was enjoyed by over 1,500 high school students. Events like this could not be possible without having suppliers such as yourself supporting us on event day and in the lead-up, so thank you! Once again thank you and looking forward to working with you all again on the next event!
We loved the training and have already started making plans for the new year. Thanks for sending the links through, so many useful resources available!
