Hear from teachers who have attended a Critical Agendas Event

Just a big Thank you for giving us the opportunity to attend the Critical Agenda Workshop yesterday.  David presented a great program, lots of handy strategies and he was very engaging and supportive. Highly recommended.  I was very happy we did not have to do any Role play’s

It was also fantastic to catch up with Zlatica, Dani, Kate and Marg, lots of laughs

A big THANK YOU once again

 Cheers
