"We are so excited about using the Interact curriculum. At a recent school review meeting with the staff at Tasman Bay Christian School, a new staff member commented on how enthusiastic children were about sharing in morning devotions. Interact is a wonderful tool to use that provides a Godly structure to our school programme. This has influenced our students' enthusiasm for learning about the nature and character of God.
As a small school we enjoy being able to all be involved in learning around a central theme which permeates a range of subject areas. This helps to build a real learning community in our school, often resulting in learning activities happening across the age groups.
The structure of Interact is such that, if needed, it provides clear guidelines for implementing class programmes for teachers new to Christian Education, or new to teaching, where a high level of support may be needed. However it is still flexible enough to allow experienced teachers to be creative in their application of the curriculum.
We are happy to recommend the Interact Curriculum and pray that God continues to bless the educational world Interact reaches. "

"As Curriculum Leader at Christ the King School, it is a pleasure and a privilege to endorse the Interact Curriuculum designed by Helen Pearson.
Our teachers were really pleased with the way knowledge intentions, skills-based learning intentions and success criteria are included in the planning along with deep probing questions to stimulate inquiry learning. This is particularly useful in supporting teachers with developing questioning skills. Teachers also find the student worksheets user-friendly as they select the appropriate ones for their class level.
We are passionate about helping children make meaningful connections with faith through their experiences. The Interact Curriculum units expound this and will also complement our RE programme.
I highly recommend the Interact Curriculum resources."
