TRUSKOOL 2010: Regional Qualifier Testimonials

"We started the 10 week mentor programme last summer and the students have gone from strength to strength. Their confidence has rocketed and they have taken this confidence and positive attitude with them to other subjects. The project has allowed them to mix with students from different year groups, form new relationships and learn to work as a team. The mentoring programme has done so much more than lead them to victory it has taught them an array of life skills. They are no longer the self conscious, uninspired and unmotivated students that they were last year. One student commented that she now ‘has a reason to come to school’ and the crew have often commented that they feel ‘like a family’.

The students have been exposed to a whole new world whilst having fun and staying fit. I have never seen them so passionate and motivated about a project. It has made dance accessible for all and I now have 2 boys taking A level dance as a direct result of being involved with the crew.

The whole TruSkool experience has been a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding one. I believe it to be one of the best things to have happened to dance in schools."
Seri Hodges. Head of Dance Highworth Grammar School, Kent.

"Just wanted to say what a thoroughly enjoyable day we had on Saturday. Having never been to an event like that before it was wonderful to see how much time and effort both the organisers and participants had put into the day so thank you for your commitment to this. My son is so enthusiastic with this and is practising every night and keeping up on Facebook with all the comments" Alison Jarvis, parent. Ironik.

"Thank you again for Saturday – I’ve had a lot of positive comments from parents about what a great event it was. It was so nice for us to be able to take part in a dance competition with such a friendly and positive atmosphere. When we’ve taken the girls to compete or perform at other schools' events, there has always been a really competitive and quite bitchy undertone, so it was great to see the students so supportive of each other! They had a blast." Lucy Barwell, host school co-ordinator. Esher High.
