We are using Diverse Shorts and Iridescent Adolescent at our school and the teachers and students LOVE them!
I just had a meeting with our Year 9 teachers and they were so enthusiastic about the Iridescent collection and the teaching resources. They said the discussions in class have been the best they've had for a long time.
