Family Science Workshop parental feedback

Our first Family Learning event was a great success, with fabulous reviews from parents and children.  We asked families to tell us their thoughts…

 “What impact do you think these sessions will have on work / activities at home?”

Parents responded:

‘It’s interesting to do the practical sessions to prove the science theory’
‘I feel the sessions will help parents and students to become used to the school and teachers’
‘We’ll know how to treat bee or wasp stings.’
‘I would like to spend more time with my daughter at home, doing experiments.’

Children responded:

‘It made me look forward to Cardinal Hume in a few months.’
‘It was so interesting and I loved it. I want to try more sessions at home.’
‘Excited and more ready for SATs.
