A day to create a ‘Poetry Buzz’ all around your school, starting with an energetic performance poetry assembly for the whole school, followed by individual class workshops. A day to let imaginations run free, creating poetry (or narratives) in a variety of styles – silly, fun, serious and thought-provoking.


‘Paul’s enthusiasm was unrelenting and contagious! He lifted and inspired everybody around him – adults too!

SHINE days

A day to celebrate the uniqueness of the human spirit and our mysterious connection to God. A day for reflection, for both children and staff alike, using words and music through poetry and song. A day to celebrate diversity, the strength of the human spirit and ultimately, a day to let our spirits SHINE!


‘Paul has combined his musical and literary talents to provide children with a day to ‘shine’. The day compliments Religious Education, Spirituality, prayer, liturgy and Personal, Social and Emotional topics. We are delighted to have heard such positive feedback from Catholic Schools! Thank you, Paul!’

A day celebrating our own unique gifts and talents and setting future goals. A day focussing upon our strengths, not weaknesses, developing a GROWTH mindset. A day looking at inspirational ‘Never quit!’ stories, such as Walt Disney and J.K. Rowling and listening to Paul’s own personal journey story.


‘I think it’s inspiring to others to never give up on your dreams and if someone says you will never be able to achieve something, just ignore them because f you believe in yourself, you will be able to achieve anything. This is what Paul taught us!’
