What schools are saying…

“The program has been implemented throughout the year with statistics showing a better than 50% reduction in the number of suspensions and acts of bullying. What the statistics don’t show is the improvements in the positive-type behaviours we see going on.”
PRIMARY SCHOOL PRINCIPAL

“After 18 years of teaching I thought I knew all about discipline in the classroom. Since I have implemented the program, I have found I have more control of my class (and myself) which allows me to teach and once again enjoy my job!”
YEAR 3 TEACHER

“After only three days my class is so much more conscious of what they are doing and I’m talking a lot less. Thanks again for the course.”
YEAR 1 & 2 TEACHER

“Great course with a very practical and realistic approach. Well grounded in research and practical experience.”
PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER
