'Eileen came to our school as part of a joint learning experience with our children and some students from a local college. The day was fantastic - really tailored to meet our requests. All learners; children, students and teachers really enjoyed listening to Eileen share stories and facts about her work. It was fantastic to meet an author and to help inspire the children that they too could become authors.'
Susie Weaver - Head, Ashley Down Infant School
'On her recent visit to Hereford Cathedral Junior School, Eileen Browne captivated and enthralled the children with her lively, humorous and interactive workshops that brought her storytelling and books to life. The children's experience of the day enhanced their learning and understanding of how to construct and illustrate creative stories. Eileen tailored her workshops to suit the scheme of work in Key Stage 1, spending time with each class as well as concluding her day with a captivating assembly for both adults and children....the children remember their day with fond memories!'
