From Calverton Primary:
"Thank you once again for attending our school last week and putting on such a fantastic workshop...here is a story that a child wrote and passed to me - she told me she was inspired by your visit and wants to become an author just like you."
From Downsend PrePrep:
"I just wanted to say a great big thank you for today. All the children had such a good time and the teachers all said how good you were with all the different age groups."
From Mount Carmel Primary:
"It was a real pleasure having you come in and work with the children. It's such a great way to get them interested in reading and writing their own stories."
“I can highly recommend having a visit from the wonderfully talented Teresa Heapy. Her beautiful crafted books captured the children’s (and teachers’) imaginations, inspiring them to write and share stories of their own. An enchanting afternoon filled with wonder and delight!”
"Thank you Teresa for a great workshop with Years 1 and 2. Your storytelling was engaging and interactive and all the children enjoyed listening and joining in with the stories you shared. They were inspired to write their own 'Very Little...' stories and were full of ideas and enthusiasm thanks to your workshop."
Teachers at St Nicholas Primary School
“Teresa was proactive and supportive in planning an exciting and engaging day in which the children had the opportunity to listen to an author’s thought processes when planning a book. She was able to ask and answer questions and differentiate the questions accordingly. The children really enjoyed the day and we would thoroughly recommend her to visit any school.”
