SCHOOLS FEEDBACK Title.
I am still awed by the tremendous performance which your group gave at Rutlish school on Wednesday, October 7th, 2015!
It was absolutely awesome and really resonated with the pupils!
You not only raised a very poignant and topical issue, but also managed to embed powerful theatrical techniques which our students can use in their own work.
Thank you so much for coming in, it was a tremendously powerful message; one that the boys will remember years to come!
I would absolutely love for you to come back to Rutlish next year- and I will arrange for the entire year 9 or 10 cohort to see the production in the hall.
As Enrichment coordinator – we welcome opportunities like this.
It was FANTASTIC!! It was lively, really funny, informative and hugely entertaining. The students really loved it. The Rah Rah Theatre Company turned up on time and they were extremely efficient setting up and packing up at the end. The actors and stage manager were very professional and it was such a pleasure working with them.
Thank you so much for organising the Rah Rah Theatre Company to come into The Business Academy for our Year 8 , 9 & 10 students (especially the extra year 8 sessions). All feedback has been good. The teachers I have spoken to have said it was Great. One of the teachers said ‘…it is the best careers presentation I have seen… it explained all the options in an entertaining way … actors were really good and didn’t try and act like our students’. Another Teacher commented … ‘It was brilliant. It conveyed the message; career advice in such a fun way’.The Business Academy Bexley
'To whom it may concern,
We have worked with Rah Rah Theatre group to support our “preparation for work” days in Bexley schools . The “WEX Factor” is a lively informative and interactive production that can engage whole year groups . Through the media of a game show format the students gain all the key facts about preparing for work experience in a fun way . For us it gives a brilliant start to work experience enthusing the students and focusing them on their placements.
Rah Rah as a company are energetic , enthusiastic, friendly, reliable and flexible and also prepared to work to meet EBP and school needs . This makes them a joy to work with.'

I am writing to thank you for coming and performing at our school today 9th July 2014.
During the show at least 2 members of staff approached me and said “they are really good! Where did you find them?” & “I like these and the boys seem to be enjoying it too!”, I have since been asked by staff who weren’t there if their year group is going to get to see the performance?
On a Wednesday I carry out an duty in our canteen and the students were all talking about it at lunch, especially seeing me brought up discussions about both the performance and their future paths, relating to either of the characters and discussing their options AND asking when they are going to get to see a careers advisor.
All of which is really great for me to hear so wanted to share these comments with yourselves.
Once again thank you and I look forward to seeing more in the near future.'

'Thank you ever so much for your show, The WEX FACTOR! It has had such a positive impact on the pupils, and motivated them to contact their employers to arrange their interviews. They are visiting me in droves to discuss their dress code and get prepared for their interview.
I'm really glad we got WEX FACTORED. Thank you once again!!'

'I am writing to thank you for the WEX-Factor performance on Tuesday 13th March. Our Students enjoyed and valued the performance. It reinforced much of my teaching and preparation of year ten students in briefing lessons. We would welcome you back next year.'

'I just wanted to thank you and all the performers for yesterday. The feedback I have received is very good. Tutors and students came up with terms such as "engaging", "appropriate", "fun" and "humorous". As I am sure you appreciate, one never knows what to expect with this sort of activity. I certainly envisage using you again next year, if you are still going to be doing this. If you are, we could book it in sooner rather than later. Let me know. Thanks once again.'
