Vivian Paley - The Boy Who Would Be a Helicopter

Amazingly, children are born knowing how to put every thought and feeling into story form. If they worry about being lost, they become parents who search; if angry, they find a hot hippopotamus to impose his will upon the world.

Sarah, mother of Amber (yr 5) and Saskia (yr 6)

Both my daughters were intrigued about Speaking works and wanted to give it a go. They have both loved it, not only from a confidence perspective but also just by simply having fun. Jude makes the lessons enjoyable and creatively informative. My youngest daughter has even taken her Grade 2 LAMDA exam, which she never thought she would before. Speaking works has given them the confidence and ability to stand up in front of others without fear, something that they can take on to the next stage of education…and life.
