“Amy is always excellent and is becomingly increasingly difficult to book in due to her understandable popularity with other schools. Her talks always receive excellent pupil feedback which is the main reason why we were keen to go ahead with this booking despite the current challenging conditions. Today’s RSE session delivered via Microsoft Teams to our year 10 cohort was as outstanding as I was expecting. I have been particularly impressed with the proactive nature of the team at It Happens… in dealing with the COVID-19 situation and ensuring that the session was as interactive and engaging as always, despite being delivered remotely. Amy contacted our pupils in advance with a questionnaire, and produced a tailored talk based on their responses. We also ran trial session with a test group the week before. In the session itself Amy used “mentimeter”, which enabled pupils to take part in live polls, express their views and answer questions anonymously. Fear not…the software makes it impossible for pupils to use profanities and pupils were very mature and appreciated the interactive nature of the talks. Some pupils have already commented that they actually found the session even more useful for being delivered remotely as they felt less embarrassed to express their views and questions through this medium. The session was so successful that we are not considering continuing to deliver some of these talks remotely post-lockdown. Thanks to Amy and the team at It Happens… for a great virtual RSE experience.”
