Andrew, That sounds great. Good luck!
You should definitely do a bit of an ad for the "Schools Project", and say that we're very much interested in working with schools with respect to Wikimedia/Wikipedia. It sounds like they're after something more than just a presentation, if possible - it might be worth just pulling up Wikipedia on the screen, and showing them various parts of it. Hopefully they'll ask you lots of questions...
