‘The students were thoroughly engaged throughout their sessions with Kit and focussed on the learning activity. The morning was relaxed, fun, informative and inspirational – enjoyed by students and staff alike. We were all very excited to meet her – she spent time talking and listening to everyone. We would thoroughly recommend schools and libraries to invite Kit in to share a little bit of her Stonewylde magic with them.’
