Kindergarten to Year 12

Storytelling is a powerful teaching and learning tool which enriches all educational experiences. My interactive storytelling programs aim to inspire students to develop a lifelong love of language, stories and cultural traditions.

Programs range from a one hour visit to a one week residency with a range of shows and workshops for students K-12. Consultation with your teaching team will help me provide the best combination of programs which are meaningful and relevant to the students' interests and needs.

All my programs connect with with key learning areas of the New South Wales Department of Education curriculum, and can be adapted to satisfy curriculum content in schools around Australia and overseas.
My storytelling programs are particularly relevant to:
Primary subjects: HSIE, English, Creative Arts
High School subjects: English, Drama, Social Studies, History.
