"Wendy Hill provided from Kidz Biz Ed provided my class with an interesting relevant delivery of aspects of Growth and Development suitably tailored to their Year 6/7 level.

The students were engaged by Wendy’s presentation techniques, which included PowerPoint programs, hands-on activities and games, DVDs and discussions. Wendy provided an informative, structured delivery intertwined with lighthearted moments that students warmed to and felt relaxed and comfortable with.

Wendy also provides a very useful teacher resource pack that enables classroom follow up activities and further student reading.

My class has all expressed through discussion and their writing how informative and fun they thought their Kidz Biz Ed sessions were and I can certainly recommend them!"
