Arranging a workshop for your school
To arrange a workshop for your school you will need to select a date on which to promote the workshop, and on which an appropriate room or hall can be used in your school. We will require the school to arrange the room for the presentation, which will require a white screen and power supply (we will bring computer and data projector). When you have decided on a date, we will supply you with a flyer which can then be posted in or outside of classrooms and school receptions or copied and circulated in children’s book bags, or how you see fit.
