- "Thank you very much for coming in and working so hard with our young children! They all had a great day and we will do our best to build on the enthusiasm the children have for seasonal food gardening!"Sally OverendSt Thomas Primary School
"Wonderful and informative and inspirational way for kids to have fun! Rafferty is still telling everyone about his orange juice carton wallet!"
- Thank you for the great workshops you did today. The best thing about it was that the children were really engaged in the activity and gained hands-on experience from the interactive workshops. It was particularly beneficial to the children as we made bug and bird houses for the school’s locality and at the end of the session, we placed the bug and bird houses around the school garden. It was important that the children took ownership of the location of the habitats, by making informed decisions as to the suitability. Each Eco session, throughout the school, fitted in with the relevant year group topics and enabled me, as a teacher, to put their learning into context through practical experience.Charlotte RodenSustainability Co-ordinator St Scholastica's Catholic Primary
- The children at Shoreham Beach Primary have loved coming to Eco Club, which has been run by Phil. We are so glad that we are getting the most of our outside wild life area and growing seasonal food. The trip to the Earthship was brilliant and Phil’s knowledge of sustainable materials and processes was enlightening.Nicola CrowhurstShoreham Beach School
“Working with Green Up Your Act has been a great experience. From the first point of contact Philip was enthusiastic about our school’s 'Go-Green' work and had great ideas to help make it a successful project. The whole school, children and teachers alike, loved the assembly and it left us full of enthusiasm and the children who made up-cycled items had a great time. The up-cyling workshops were accessible to all children and they are using what they made and really proud that they have recycled. We look forward to working with Green Up Your Act again in the future.”Katherine Lamb Emmaville Primary School - Tyne & Wear
- The whole school really enjoyed your assembly about the importance of recycling which was made even more interesting when you showed them the items that had been made from recycled material. The pratical activity of recycling newspaper to make a plant pot and planting seedlings was a good hands on activity in which all of our pupils were able to experience success. Many thanks Phil!Dawn MartinCedar Centre Brighton
