TESTIMONIALS

What Our Students Say

As Deputy Principal of a large primary school, I am often faced with situations where I need to provide guidance and support for students.

Having recently completed the course, I have already used many of the strategies back at school and now feel more confident and well-equipped to deal with student issues.

The course was practical, action-packed and opened my mind to the many ways we can speak with and support students. I now feel better-equipped to manage the “difficult conversations” when my school counsellor isn’t on site. The added bonus is that many of the strategies will prove effective in my personal life as well.

Thanks Rocky! I will definitely be recommending the course to my staff.

I have already used some of the tips I learnt at the training with an irate parent and a cranky student, with great success! Thank you.

The Conscious Classroom Management training covered many valuable aspects of classroom management. Good reinforcement of certain things I’m already implementing and it also provided useful strategies to utilise.

Bede Polding College

A most excellent and productive workshop that gave me a new outlook towards classroom management.

Thomas Elley
Sefton High School

I was lucky enough to try out some techniques with a year eight girl today and I felt 100% more confident speaking to a young girl who has been reluctant to open up to anybody and has been in and out of hospital over the past month. Before I knew it 45 minutes had passed and I had said barely anything. The student said “it was nice to actually talk and not be lectured”.

Very powerful tools rocky!!! Cheers.
