What The Teachers Are Saying:
"The two actors were so talented and their characters and voices were really engaging. Also
the references to current celebrities and culture made the performance amusing and really
enjoyable. The program was really informative and engaging. In a year where we have been
very limited it is great that you managed to deliver a product that we could use and that the
students could learn from and enjoy. I streamed the broadcast to my class over Teams and it
worked perfectly. Thank you!"
- Kilbreda College, VIC.
"My students found the performance very humorous, which kept them engaged. Very
engaging and informative for our year 7s."
- Penola Catholic College, VIC.
"They really enjoyed the humour of the actors, the pop-culture references were current and the message s related to the importance of ocean ecosystems, sustainability etc were expressed in an interesting and way. Great work on your ability to adapt the program to a virtual performance."
