Talks and workshops at your school

We visit schools and children’s clubs to provide free of charge assemblies, talks and workshops to raise awareness about endangered wildlife and conservation.

Key information:

You can now book a session 5 days a week and we are able to support afterschool clubs with four linked workshops of 45-60 minutes each. Wherever possible, we will try and deliver our talks and workshops face to face but online is possible for most talks if you prefer.

Our talks are free but a donation to the Foundation is always  gratefully received and will go towards the protection of endangered species. Our trials have shown that booking one of our talks and then a follow up online Q and A session a few days later works very well. Let us know what you would prefer.

For classes of 35 or less, we will offer a booklet with a range of linked activities your children can do after the talk. We can still support whole school assemblies. We delivered to over 4500 children last year. Our resource is finite, so we would encourage you to book in advance.

For more information please email our Education Team: education@davidshepherd.org

Teacher feedback

“We loved the interaction in the assembly… The link to habitats was perfect because it covers all three year group’s science curriculum.”

Gemma Stevenson, Ewhurst School

The children were so inspired, they started to write tiger facts and we had a tiger themed show and tell. Your session was perfect, just the right length of time on the carpet and the mask making was great.”

Maria Mayes, Woodlea Primary

It was lovely having you and the children really enjoyed the session… it was very organised, the right length for the children’s age and lovely activities. I am already thinking about next year!”

Carla Scarpato, St Francis Ventnor

Feedback from children from David Shepherd at their School

We had fun making the animal habitats… when I grow up, I want to work at an animal charity and help animals.”

“I really enjoyed your talk about the endangered animals and I never knew that there were not many tigers left.”
