Comments & Testimonials

Eilish spoke with passion about her career and the children listened intently. Her visual presentation was relevant and provided great information. She was extremely clear about work ethic and this theme permeated throughout her entire presentation. She spoke with confidence and answered children’s questions brilliantly. I found Eilish to be extremely inspirational and would welcome her back into the school in a heartbeat. Thank you.
Scott Callander, Garnock Community Campus
Eilish was a pleasure to have with us in school. Her presentation for the children was engaging and inspiring. Eilish made time to speak to all staff and children, and had a lovely manner towards all. She took time to sign lunch bags and rulers. A truly inspirational individual
