    Jeanne Purdy Singing School

    25-03-2016 by Alison Taylor

    Jeanne taught my daughter singing for three years. She gave her outstanding encouragement and support. Jeanne always made sure she had songs that suited her voice, and was always willing to 'go the extra mile' when she was preparing for competitions or NCEA singing. We greatly appreciate Jeanne's contribution to my daughter's singing and personal development.

    My Singing with Jeanne

    20-03-2016 by Perter Rea

    I joined Jeanne around 5 years ago to scratch a mid life itch to rekindle an interest in singing. Starting from a position of very rough round the edges encouragement and some expert tuition from Jeanne has brought me improvement and confidence. I really enjoy participating in both choir groups and doing some solo work as well. I am having a blast with a great bunch of people and I now firmly believe singing is so good for health and for soul.

    Love of Dance

    27-10-2014 by

    "My daughter has never loved dance so much as she does now. Marika and her talented teachers convey high expectations and inspire their students to work hard and take dance seriously, but at the same time class is friendly and encouraging and fun. Wonderful knowledgeable teachers who always have time for their students and their parents."

    Annaleise, You're a star

    08-10-2016 by Lauren

    Today Annaleise came to paint 10 little faces at my sons 5th birthday party. The theme was Star Wars and my son wanted to be a storm trooper. As Annaleise hadn't painted a storm trooper before she did her research and after finding a little face to practice on, she sent me a picture to make sure that it was what my birthday boy was after. She was spot on! We had such a great day today, the kids were so pleased with their face paint, the parents were raving about her detailed work and the teacher who was at Kindy with us where we held our party was so impressed she has her down to paint the kids at their end of year Christmas party. Annaleise you are fantastic, so professional and with a great set up. You had all your pictures up for the kids to choose from and you were just great with all the little people. Thanks so much for being another wonderful smiley face at our party. We highly recommend you to all!.

    Answer from Fiction Faces on 25-10-2016:
    Thank you! It was a pleasure to be part of your sons party. It was great to meet all of you. Annaleise

    Best karate teacher

    05-06-2019 by Erika

    Highly recommend! The head teacher there is excellent and has decades of knowledge and experience under her black belt, on top of being a full-time high school teacher and dean. She is very patient, encouraging and trains students for competitions on some weekends at no extra charge. Members travel up to an hour and a half to take her classes, which is incredible and is a reflection of her character and dedication to teaching. 10/10 would recommend! :)
