What people have to say?
Thanks so much for inviting the Coventry Young Ambassadors to the Sports Week. We all had a fantastic day and it was great to meet the VIPs, visitors from Japan and all the families who stopped by at our stand. The children felt really proud to be there. (Coventry Primary School Teacher)
Thanks so much for arranging all the training yesterday. It was really successful and I feel that we can now get properly started with the children. (Coventry Primary School Deputy Head Teacher)
Many, many thanks for organising all the training yesterday. It was really successful and the children made a lot of progress. It was great to have the Ambassadors leading the sessions. Please pass on my thanks for their hard work and for inspiring so many young people. Rebecca Bollands (Deputy Head, Howes Primary)
The young ambassadors were very good, making good choices and having clear ideas on what skills are needed to be an ambassador. It was very satisfying to see how quickly they became more confident and made new friends. (Dawn, Coventry Ambassador Volunteer)
