SPONSORS:

“Horizon Credit Union engaged NTC to roll out a financial literacy program to 4,000 primary school children in ten performances along the South Coast of NSW. The printed materials, website and performances were extremely professional, entertaining and educational. NTC coordinated everything with the schools and maintained excellent communication throughout the process. As a result of the program we have educated children on financial literacy, forged relationships with schools near our branches, reinforced our brand with parents and teachers and we were able to gain support from local press that was priceless.
I would not have any hesitation in recommending NTC.”

“This program will help prepare students to enter the global conversation about energy efficiency and resource conservation. When learning is combined so seamlessly with laughter, kids tend to retain information remarkably well. It’s fantastic to see kids so excited about topics that might not always seem especially exciting.”

 “I’ll take every opportunity we’re given to spread financial literacy. The ‘Mad About Money’ material is colorful and graphic, and it’s a good way to expose students and teachers to new programs they may not have seen before.”

“We get such great response from everyone who sees a performance – teachers, students, bank employees. We’ve even had customers walk into a local branch and thank us for bringing the program into their schools! There’s a tremendous level of appreciation, especially in smaller communities that typically have fewer options for this kind of programming. I’m proud that Bank of the West has made a financial commitment to take ‘Mad About Money’ into the schools. While it’s certainly done a lot to create a positive image for the bank, I’m proudest of the positive impact that the program has had on our students.”

“Raising awareness among adults about energy efficiency and conservation is important, but the best – and most effective – way to impact change, I believe, is to educate the next generation about the key issues affecting energy.”

TEACHERS:

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the humor and characters….They loved the books prior to the show. It is fabulous to have free educational access to the theatre at school. Thank you!”

Toni Nichols, St. Mary’s School

 

“Very entertaining and releant to the life world of each and every student. All students could make a connection on some level which was relevant to their homes and families and what they may already do as energy efficient families. Good links to school as well students able to apply and connect knowledge to the school and classroom.”

 

“The children loved the production. I would highly endorse it as a way to engage children in a very important message that is sometimes covered in a very non-engaging way at school. The actors were truly fantastic and should be commended for their enthusiasm. Thank you for the opportunity. ”
