What teachers are saying about this tour program:


Just a huge thank you on behalf of Morwell Park Primary School on the excursion that you ran on Friday for our grade 5/6 students. You were excellent with the students, you both really extended their interests and understanding of not only the power station and how it operated but how energy works in general. It was engaging, specific to our energy unit and professional. The students are currently writing about the day and I had three students (usually dis-engaged in writing) come up this morning asking if they can put their writing piece in our newsletter and if were able to finish them off today. We feel the tour/ excursion was terrific and a credit to you and the organisation.

Thank you very much for the comprehensive tour of Loy Yang B. The students and myself wish to commend you both for imparting so much information about the science of energy and the vital industry and landmark that Loy Yang is within our community.

I attended a session earlier this year, accompanying a year 12 Physics class. I was very impressed with the quality and content of the presentation and tour.
