testimonials

One of our favourite things at eastside is hearing directly from our participants, teachers and facilitators and volunteers to see what they think about our projects. Here is just a small selection of these quotes...

participants

The short course helped so much in introducing me to a form of writing that I had never really considered before and really ultimately reminded me that writing is what I really want to do!

teachers

There has been a noticeable difference in the pupils' confidence, creativity and quality of writing with an increase in those reaching the greater depth standard this year.

My class keep asking if it's Verse vs Verse week. They simply can't wait to show Eastside their work!

Teacher, London Borough of Kensington

 

I thought the quality of teaching and learning was excellent and the children and I learnt a great deal. It has given me a lot to work with for the remainder of the term.

facilitators

Likewise I had a great time working with you, the whole Eastside team and the young filmmakers. Every part of the project felt positive and I feel like on the whole it was a success.

Facilitator, Eastside's A Summer in Film

  

It felt really clear to me that these students had been through Verse vs Verse - they entered into everything so willingly and creatively with none of the barriers students often feel…Thanks again for this great and beautifully organised project.

volunteers

I wanted to thank you for such a terrific experience - every moment of which was a pleasure. The children were so touching in their enthusiasm - words they used to describe the event included ‘excellent’, ‘wonderful’, ‘extravagant!'

Volunteer, Verse vs Verse Poetry Slam

 

Thank you for having us. It was a great day and I feel very grateful to have been a part of it. Please let me know when you next need volunteers as we have plenty of people eager to take part.
