Dave Benson Phillips dropped in to entertain young people at Keelman’s Way school in Hebburn, on Friday 7 June.
Dave spent the day delivering Makaton signing and singing workshops to pupils aged between 2-19 years old. He kept pupils at Keelman’s Way, in Hebburn, entertained with nursery rhymes, and sing-a-longs with his guitar, taking requests for everything from George Ezra’s Shotgun, to Mama-Mia!
“He’s just got so much energy, he’s not stopped all day,” said Assistant Head Teacher, at Keelman’s Way, Laura McGregor. “He’s a fantastic role model for our children, they are absolutely hooked – and even a few of the older staff who remember him from Playbus.”
She continued: “We’ve got children who really struggle with their communication, with their emotions and in terms of how he’s engaged them he’s just been wonderful.”
