REEL EARTH SCHOOLS PROGRAMME
This year's Programme weaves together three themes:
Water (the theme of this year's festival),

Schools will be invoiced on return of the loan kit, for the length of time it was borrowed. These prices do not include transport. If a school cannot collect/return a loan kit, we will courier it to the school. A charge for this will be added to the invoice.
Please return the kits promptly, as another school may be waiting for them. We expect some wear and tear on the kits but there will be a fee for loss or unreasonable damage. Please fill in the evaluation form included in the kit. This helps us to assess whether or not the kits are meeting your needs.
