Cherry Trees Special School chair of governors et al. in Cherry Trees Special School, Tower Hamlets, London - late March, 2001

from Spitalfields Festival Evaluation Report 2000-2001 Education and Community Programme, page 37:

I was privileged to be among the audience [at 'Fire is Tiger'] on Friday and was deeply impressed at the quality of the work presented. It has always been my experience that the involvement of professional artists enriches the curriculum and this has certainly been the case at The Cherry Trees. The input of the poet and musicians from the[Spitalfields] Festival clearly enhanced the boys’ motivation and raised their attainment.
