Product Description

Colonial Tales. school incursion is a great alternative to the full day "Colonial Show".

Providing 1 hour of non-stop fun, educational and accurate anecdotes, this is the show to select if you have a tight budget.

The Colonial Tales school incursion presents a hilarious and educationally wonderful experience - a living history of the convict - a journey as seen through the eyes of the children of New South Wales.

Sergeant Kennedy, the Wench or Convict James Murphy takes the students on a trip through the annals of time to the convict days and the early colony of New South Wales.The students relive the Voyage of the First Fleet, raise the King’s Colours, attend work orders and then this is where the fun begins as your students and school experience participation in a recruitment of soldiers into the New South Wales Corp and the arrest of a student convict.

Designed to provide more educational information than hands on interaction and fun, the 1 hour alternative show is a great alternative.

The questions are ...

  • What to do with the convict?

  • Can the students hold their wits and tell the story of the Black Velvet Band and how the British Government introduced the practise of Cribbing which framed tradesmen for the crime of theft?

  • Can they bear to hear the serious, yet funny stories told by the characters and the reason they were sent to the Colony of NSW?

Colonial Tales (1 hour show) school incursion is an informative performance filled with facts and student participation based on the Human Society and Its Environment (HSIE) Syllabus "British Colonisation" and can ALSO be incorporated in the Connected Outcomes Group Support Curriculum (C.O.G.S) Syllabus.

This is an affordable show for all schools and there is only one way to find out if your students can dual with the Sergeant, laugh with the convict or believe the wench and that is to let your students experience one of the most productive education incursion in Australia.

Colonial Tales is an interactive show right in the safety of your school grounds.  It is a perfect event to have at your school to encourage, stimulate or enhance what the students are learning and is one of the best educational resources in Australia.

    Management Reply to Review Hi Tony, As the event supervisor I am happy to hear that the show and the quality and professionalism of the show. We always try to maintain a high standard of our shows as a large production company. Our Show prices for schools is heavily reduced to allow many schools to be able to afford the shows. I will definitely forward your suggestion to our accounts department. I would like to note that according to our records on your booking, the Tax Invoice was emailed quite a few times to your schools accounts person who informed us that they did not receive the email and this is why the Invoice was Faxed. However even after faxing the Invoice and the reminders, I see the account was not paid in full until the 4th reminder which included the admin fees. This is an unfortunate situation, however, we did try to remind your accounts team of the due date and balance multiple times and payment was not made or a request for a payment extension. I am sorry to hear that you experienced this, but I can see that we did try to help by adjusting a portion of the late fees.


    General Feedback

    Contacting Iconic Performances and being advised of what type of show we would require and booking it was excellent The show was brilliant and very informative. The students loved the interactive nature and were able to learn in a fun and engaging way. Unfortunately there was some confusion regarding payment. This was mainly centered on us needing a tax invoice but only receiving a booking invoice initially. There were a number of queries from SJA and Iconic Performances that lasted for a few weeks. In addition there was quite a number of admin fees added onto the initial price which totaled just over $200. Deposit was paid on time. We received the tax invoice for the remaining amount via fax. This was then paid. A suggestion would be to email the tax invoice instead of fax. The show you put together is a very professional and very well thought out production which captivated the audience and meant they learnt quite a-lot. I would recommend Iconic Performances to anyone, just need to ensure accounts department runs smoothly. Cheers, Tony Barnes
