    "Our trip to Brookville is always excellent. Students say it is the best trip they have ever been on and I enjoy observing and learning about my students." ~ Bellmore Gr. 6 Teacher
     
    "Truly a positive experience from start to finish. We felt fortunate to be paired with such a knowledgeable guide!"

     "Paul led a group of 10 students with moderate/severe intellectual disabilities. He was an excellent motivator and adapted tasks and verbal directions to promote success in trying something new, taking risks and teamwork." ~ Gr. 8 Teacher
     
    "This was my first time to Brookville so I didn't know what to expect. Other teachers speak so fondly about the program and now I see why! My students and I look forward to many more adventures in Brookville!" ~ Hewlett Woodmere, Gr 3 Teacher
