Testimonials

“The children absolutely loved their excursion! Thank you very much to yourself and your crew for helping us run the day so smoothly. They also loved the added feature of Shark Island.”

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Primary School – Feb 2014

“It was a perfect day on Sydney Harbour. The students, teachers and parents thoroughly enjoyed themselves. One of the parents spoke glowingly to our lolly-pop lady who recalled going on “Lessons Afloat” with her own children over 20 years ago and said how memorable it was. Brendan was very entertaining and ensured the students were completing their worksheets and following the map accurately.”

“All went well on the cruise. Merrill was great. He has fantastic historical knowledge. Overall, all good and we will be back next year. Georgina is also booked for September with her Year 11 group. I would also like to say that we came on board with you (ha) because of your very pleasant attitude and flexibility. I had spoken (and sort of booked – boy they were pushy!) with a competitor, but after dealing with you I immediately cancelled our booking!”

Newcastle Grammar School – March 2014

“Excursion was great. Wasn’t full on and the girls enjoyed the cruise and seeing the different sites. The lady we had was excellent. We will definitely be booking again for next year.”

Cerdon College March 2014

“The feedback from the teachers was all positive. They also thought they were lucky to have cruise liners and seaplanes flying over while they were aboard.”

Lindfield East PS – March 2014

“We were very happy with the excursions. Both days were exactly what we wanted. Lucky for us the weather was perfect. The ferry was perfect in terms of seating, safety etc. The staff particularly on the Tuesday were excellent. The worksheets kept the students busy and on task.”

Samuel Gilbert Public School – March 2014

“It was a great excursion Diana. I highly recommend it. Ann engaged the students well, her commentary was linked to our unit Places then Now and tomorrow. A great day, thank you.”

Meriden Junior School – June 2014

“Thank you so much for providing us with a fantastic excursion experience!! Despite the weather, the students and my colleagues were really impressed with Lessons Afloat. I really appreciated Robert calling me close to 10 am to check on our whereabouts. We had been caught up in traffic. He met us at the steps of the Opera House and welcomed us and introduced me to Merrill and Matthew. Merrill had a wealth of knowledge and suitably addressed our students, pointed out what they needed to see and assisted them with their worksheets- keeping them on task the whole time. All your staff were really accommodating as well. We had to change the venue of our drop off (because of the weather and a Plan B to our excursion). Nothing was a problem at all…it was very much appreciated. Diana, thank you again for all your assistance and resources when organising an excursion through your company. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends who are teachers at other schools. I’m sure Sadleir PS will use Lessons Afloat again in the future.”

“A quick email to let you know that our excursion on board the Proclaim was a great success. The students really enjoyed the day – and they loved the Clifton Gardens playground. Thanks for all your assistance.”
