Testimonials for the work of Joe Bolton.

Mark Pescud - Deputy Principal

The Suitcase Circus was loved by all students PP to Year 6 and is great value. I have received a lot of positive feedback from the parents, students and teachers. The education and skills based approach is excellent and was pitched very well for the different ages. I can recommend this incursion without reservation.
