Hi Krishna,

Thank you so much for your email. We have thoroughly enjoyed our workshop today and would highly recommend it to other schools. Indri has given me some leaflets, which I am going to hand out when I am next on a course in the Local Authority!

With regard to feedback, all three classes which were involved have found Indri’s workshop funny, engaging, pacy, exciting and inspiring. The range of artifacts that Indri brought was truly magical for the children- it was like having a taste of India in our school. What was equally lovely was that just like week, we were talking about a range of Indian spices in our literacy lessons (comparing them to the colours of the rainbow) and Indri was able to show us some real-life examples of these spices, including saffron, which we were all very excited about.

Indri was efficient with setting up and he was able to make use of the space provided. Even when there was a slight issue with the amount of children/staff available to help with the face-painting, Indri remained calm and quickly came up with an alternative solution to ensure that all of the children had their face painted.

I would love to look to book for next year, however, I was mentioning to Indri, as a school we are not sure who is going to be teaching in which year group next year. As soon as I know, I will be in contact. Similarly, if it is not me who is in Year 1/2 for the India topic next year, I will be recommending your workshop for them (in high regard!).

Thank you again for all of your help in organising this event, Krishna, and a huge thank you to Indri too for all of his hard work in putting the day together.

Take care,

Abbie 😆

Hello Krishna,

A big thank you to Indri for his informative, colourful, vibrant & fun visit. The children and staff had a wonderful morning and learnt a lot. Indri held the attention of a difficult bunch of year 5/6’s who all got involved and listened attentively all morning – a testament to his superb delivery and resources. I would highly recommend your services to other schools and am hoping to book again for our KS1 children next school year when I know where Hindusim fits in to our yearly curriculum plan.

Many thanks again,

Sarah

Hi Krishna 

Thank you for your email. We had a fantastic time on Monday it was wonderful! The children (and adults) learnt plenty about Hinduism as a result of Indri’s engaging session. 

We will of course recommended you to other schools.

Krishna,  

The children seemed to have a really brilliant experience, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We did a recount of the workshop today and many of them remembered lots of the facts and names learned during the visit. 

Thank you very much for that.

I though you were great with the children and you were very organised. 

 

Many thanks,

Hi Krishna, 

Thank you for coming yesterday! The children and staff really enjoyed the session. I will be hoping to book next year, but will have to decide on dates etc. first so will probably book around October time for a session again in January if that’s okay? I will be in contact then.  

I will take your leaflets to my next network meeting which is coming up in the next couple of weeks and recommend you. 

Thanks again, 

Harriet.

My class loved it, it was age appropriate with lots of story telling and actions. They loved trying on the different shawls/sari’s and especially the bindi’s! They also enjoyed trying on the bangles and how they affected the story, lovely experience of a very kind religion!

Thank you so much for a wonderful morning Krishna. You really immersed the children in the Hindu culture and gave them a breadth of knowledge and understanding relating to stories, customs and traditions. The room was so colourful and exciting, a real sensory feast for the children. Kathy Chapple, Class teacher

It was a pleasure meeting you and your husband. You had such a lovely calming manner that was such a welcome relief to the usual hectic pace of school life. And I’m pleased to say that the children in my class all remembered the way to sit for “meditation” today and so I am going to keep this part of my daily routine!
