"The class were enthralled throughout the event. Enthusiasm was sparked and they were raving to write their own stories, which were very good." Stoneywood Primary School, Aberdeen.
“Having attended a session with Sam, I can vouch for how enthralled the children were throughout. He really fired their imagination and the exercises he conducted were both educational and, more importantly, fun! And for us a charity, the message that having asthma need not be a barrier to living a full, healthy and adventurous lifestyle is one we are keen to promote at every opportunity.” Gordon Brown, Public Affairs and Communications Manager, Asthma UK Scotland.
'The workshop was an excellent learning experience; the pupils were absolutely spellbound.'
S. Mowatt - Primary 7 Teacher, Ladyton Primary School, Alexandria
“Sam Wilding was absolutely brilliant, pupils and staff enthralled by him, big range too from P4 to S1 but he held attention of all of them the whole time. Loved the activity part of it too.” (80 pupils) - Head`Librarian - Castlebay, Barra.
Sam also writes plays and songs for schools. Find out more by emailing him. Every pupil and teacher thoroughly enjoyed their workshop sessions. Thank you for inspiring the children. - Natalie Dick - Morrison's Academy, Crieff.
'As National Director with the charity Asthma UK Scotland I would like to publically thank Sam for all his work and enthusiasm. One of the biggest issues people with asthma face is a lack of awarness about what having the condition actually means, how serious it can be but also with the right management most people with asthma can lead healthy and active lives. Sam's work has helped these messages become more accessible - and in an engaging way.' Gordon Brown - Asthma UK Scotland
