"The Gifts from the Gods combines the art of story-telling with Greek mythology in a highly engaging and empowering program that allows students to realise and explore their own values and strengths as individuals. The talents of Karen Eastwood from Story Spot and Alex Wegner from Sketch It Live take students on a journey through Greek mythology, listening to and role-playing tales of heroics, before crafting their own version where they are the hero of their own story.
I would highly recommend this program, as it caters for all students. Even the most reluctant of writers can't help but get swept up in the mythology and create their own story maps of worlds where they conquer the beast. Thank you, Alex and Karen, for the gifts you Goddesses bestowed upon us."
