I found myself in a little town called Brigalow, where I spoke to a lovely little country school, the students ranged from prep to grade 6.

The students were delightful, attentive, and had a go at writing with their feet for me. The students told me about their town and also were very good ambassadors to tell me about the Chinchilla Melon Fest that was happening on the weekend, they were so excited.


Trish and Trevor,

Can not thank you enough for your presentation and talk today.  The kids were absolutely engaged and I am sure that your story of giving anything a go and finding a way around obstacles will be one we can revisit often when they are encountering difficulties in their own lives.


I have paid a lot of money for motivational speakers to visit our school, and yours was well and truly above those.  Very personal and with photos and activities the kids could relate to.  Thankyou!
