Bike Tastic - Cycle Safety DOE Theatre In Education Programme Reviews February 2015
"I would like to express my sincere thanks to you on behalf of the boys and girls of Cloughmills Primary School, for enabling Footsteps theatre company to visit our school this morning with their performance of Bike-tastic. The whole school, thoroughly enjoyed the performance, which was highly effective in delivering road safety education through the medium of drama. We invited the children’s parents to join us for the performance and their feedback was extremely positive. Children from our neighbouring school St. Brigid’s also attended, thus ensuring that the important safety messages highlighted this morning, are being discussed in homes this evening, across the whole Cloughmills community. Many thanks again." Peter Crabbe, Principal, Cloughmills PS
"Thank you for including St. Mary’s in the showcasing of the “Bike-Tastic” show. Both pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the show whilst learning at the same time. A very valuable message was communicated to the children through the use of drama – a very worthwhile and enjoyable presentation." Margaret , Rathfriland Primary School
"Just wanted to let you know how much the children enjoyed the ‘Biketastic’ Play. It really highlighted the importance of wearing a helmet in a fun yet informative manner. The kids (and big kids!!!) thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope that more shows like this will be available to schools in the future. The actors were fabulous and understood their audience so well. Thank you for bringing such an important message to Iveagh." Jan, Iveagh PS
"I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for arranging the performance in school yesterday. The 'Footsteps' group were excellent and really got across the message of bicycle safety. The children thoroughly enjoyed the play but also learnt some very important messages. Thanks again."
Janet Douds, Principal, Taughmonagh PS
"I wanted to let you know that Footsteps, who visited school today, were terrific. The drama was very engaging and as I am teaching a particularly challenging class this year I was struck by how interested and focussed the children were. The team were professional, warm, hilarious and well organised and delivered a strong road safety message in an exciting way.Thank you again and please pass this on to the team." Janet Smyth, Springhill Primary School
