TESTIMONIALS

 

Daniel Howard

200-plus Grade Ten boys seated in rows in our assembly hall for almost two hours… A Writers’ Workshop class populated by the most creative minds in the school… A classroom full of our most academically disengaged and at-risk senior students… A collection of teachers sitting in the staffroom with cups of tea in their hands.

…I have seen The People’s Poet, Geoff Goodfellow, captivate all of the above, holding them in the figurative palm of his hand and hanging on his every word.
