Here's what schools have to say....

It was absolutely fantastic! The students took so much from it and have been desperately following Coral’s advice and trying to get their hours up to be an author! The teachers were so impressed with the sessions and have all written notes on how we can include her ideas in our planning Grade 4 Teacher Strathaird Primary School

The teachers were very impressed with the presentation. The ideas fitted in perfectly with what we are trying to do. It was also great to have the lessons, strategies and ideas the teachers are giving reinforced by a real author. Principal, Wandin Yallock Primary School

I highly recommend Coral Vass and the literacy programs she provides for preschool and school age children. Coral ran an entertaining literacy session for our four year old group supporting children to ignite their imagination and create their very own story. Students were engaged and delighted as their understandings of narrative structure, characterisation and language were broadened. Coral has a rare gift for capturing children’s interest and taking them on a journey of discovery and wonder. We can’t wait for Coral’s next visit!  Early Learning Centre Director, Bayside Christian College

Coral Vass attended our school and facilitated 3 sessions across all classes in our school. For each class, she adapted her content and delivery to suit the needs of the children she was working with. She remained professional and engaging during each of the sessions and provided a platform for teachers to continue the learning for the remainder of the term. Feedback from the students was that they enjoyed listening to Coral reading her stories, liked hearing about how she wrote them and learnt lots about writing a children’s book. I would recommend Coral to any other school or educational setting. Social Worker – Primary Wellbeing Officer, Warburton Primary School

The children got a lot from the presentation. I have had great feedback from the children and their parents. As a teacher, it was great to hear and see someone so passionate about their craft, but also understand and appreciate their audience. We would love to have Coral back next year.  Kardinia International Preschool Teacher
