What People Are Saying
Celia has a real passion and a lot of knowledge around getting children exploring their natural environments outside. The sessions that Celia run are inspiring too. Highly recommend.
An outstanding presentation of an approach to learning that is desperately needed in these times of mental health fragility among our young people.
Thanks for leading such a great discussion, I really think it cemented the evening to our NZ context especially in terms of which direction we want our education sector to head in.
