Changes to prices from 2015
Due to increasing petrol prices (which has made getting to schools and the cost of the activity bag equipment much more expensive) we have raised our price per student for workshops conducted as of January 2015. Please note that we have kept this price rise to a bare minimum (only 50 cents per student and our first price rise since 2007) so that our workshops remain affordable for everyone.
