Here’s what your colleagues say
“I found the sessions easy to follow and engaging for my
students. The teacher notes are very clear and helped me get
a real picture of what kids should do in each session. I love the
printable proformas and templates.”
Kim Ritchie, Year 6 coordinator Vic

“The NEW Young Leaders Program is a great enhancement to our
existing leadership program. It’s sequential, enjoyable for kids
and importantly, easy for teachers to implement. The concept
of personal and public leadership adds a new dimension to our
programs. I know parents will see great value and fully support
this program.”
Andrew Forrest, Principal Baxter PS Vic
