These are just some of the comments I was sent after working with a school in Australia some years ago.

Believe me, it's worthwhile working on these things, despite all the traumas and set backs, when you get comments like this and I'm absolutely certain we can still produce this type of enthusiasm if you GET INVOLVED with this new project or, better still, arrange for us to visit your school for a day.

Hi Richard

Here is one very happy student sending her thanks on behalf of my class last year. As you can see, they really did love it and learned so much. They learned how to use different software and use equipment effectively (digital camera, scanner, printer etc). It was great to see the children collaborating and working towards a common goal to achieve success both academically and socially/emotionally. I am looking forward to working with you again this year with my new group, and am so thankful that your project has enhanced my program so much. I hope you get back to Australia soon, so we can finally meet and the kids will meet the man they have been writing to for the last six months! So thanks again, good luck for the year and we will be in touch soon.

Kind regards,

Claire Barrett-Lennard

Dear Richard
I am writing to thank you very much for the cool projects we were able to do and send to you last year. They were so fun and interesting and I learned a lot. Everyone worked really hard on the project and when it was finished, it looked awesome. I learned how to use a scanner and learned some new things about Microsoft word that I didn’t know before I did the One World Project work. I’m glad I learned how to use the scanner because we can use it when we make our year seven graduation booklet at the end of the year. I also loved doing the drawing project because even though I can’t draw very good, it was really cool to see my work on the website after we sent it to you. I showed my mum at home on our computer and she thought it was really good. I wish that we could do the One World Project in year seven, but we are doing other things. I think this years year sixes will love it too, so I hope they get the chance with Miss Barrett-Lennard. Thanks for everything you did for us.

Elle and Montanna think this website is a very very good idea because people all over the world can see the different cultures. Elle and Montanna feel very FAMOUS! to be on your website. Montanna and Elle enjoyed the website very very very much because we got to learn about the little students in our school. Elle and Montanna would love to continue this program as we only have one year of primary school left. Good luck and bye love

We liked to look at all the other schoolwork and compare it with ours. It feels really great to see our work on the internet we feel very proud. You should try to get a school from almost every country to do a project.

Dear Richard,
My friend Emma and I agree that your site is excellent! We felt honoured to have our work published on your site. We enjoyed working on our project “A Day in the Life Of” because we found out some great information on Jessica Piggot. We think that it is wonderful that you are creating a site like this and that you should keep up the great work!!! Emma and I also agree that it is great that people from other countries can, in a way, “experience” Australian life.

I bet that every person is excited. It is incredible how you can create such success. The project was so fun. It didn’t take as long as I thought that it would go on for. Typing it was easy and fast. Finding a way to organise it was harder. Maybe next time you could include some pictures with the writing to show the people who the person is.
Well thanz again!!!

I think the site is a complete success. Thanks for putting our projects on the site. We are amazed with work you have done to get this. To see our work on the site is a real thriller and Mrs BL says we are famous. We enjoyed finding information about Nikki Slee and trying to put it all together. Thanks for letting us be a part of this experience

I thought the site was really, really cool. It gave people the chance to put their work on the internet for other schools to see. I loved doing the project. It was really fun. Thanx for doing the one world project.

I THINK THAT THE SITE IS GREAT. IT IS ALL SET OUT NICELY AND YOU ARE ALL ORGANISED. WHEN I GO ON THE INTERNET AND I SEE MY WORK THERE I FEEL SO HAPPY. IT IS JUST SO COOL. I THINK I AM FAMOUS.
DID REALLY ENJOY THE PROJET. IT WAS FUN AND VERY THRILLING TO DO. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN.
ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT IT IS A VERY GOOD PROJECT AND WONDERFUL SITE.

We think the site is really good because you get to know more about other people's backgrounds around the world. We Like it because it's good to have your own website. We enjoyed the project because we got to know more about the person we chose. We think the project was a good learning experience.
