School Incursions Sydney
Your leading presenter, Ben Trezona, has over a decade of experience in presenting school shows and school incursions in Sydney.
His shows are informative, educational and truly entertaining. The central show is safe, supervised, highly interactive with a large array of props, weapons and costumes for your students to experience.
Geared at the N.S.W. Year 7 /8 curriculum, we use visual, tactile and auditory learning techniques to help your students expand classroom facts into a strong, vivid, lasting three dimensional experience leading them to appreciate the people, cultures, and artifacts of medieval times in Europe and the middle east.
With our flexible format you can book our 90 minute central “Medieval History Show” then pick and choose from our list of “Added Value Shows” to create a unique half or even full day experience.
The Main Show includes:
- A brief background to the medieval period.
- The birth of Islam.
- Viking invasions
- Battle of Hastings.
- 4 students armour up as Normans and Saxons to help demonstrate medieval martial arts and period battlefield experiences.
- Feudal system.
- Black death.
- Medicine and mortality.
- Courtly love and marriage.
- Hands on experience for all.

Our team building and workshop activities are suitable for students and adults alike and ask the question shouldn’t development be fresh fun and safe? Most importantly shouldn’t it be easy?
We think children and adults should have every opportunity to develop a range of skills in a fun, safe, friendly environment. We have a range of workshop ideas that aid development in a variety of ways including building up self-confidence, coordination, self-awareness, unusual fine and gross motor skills and communication skills. Fitting into either the English, Creative Arts, PDHPE, or HSIE syllabuses our workshops are an interesting, bright and novel way of nurturing these skills and meeting N.S.W. Syllabuses for the Australian curriculum outcomes in both Stage 2 and 3.
Regardless of what it is you need, Rampant Entertainment have everything you require and have been managing and performing school specific events for well over a decade so we can ensure that your event is in safe hands.
