    Testimonials

    I really appreciate this service. The students listened intently and the message hit the mark. Many thanks.

    Elizabeth Pratt | Cannon Hill Anglican College

    I just wanted to say thank you for helping to organise the Safer Schoolies presentation. Angela, Karen and Simon did a great job, managing to engage the students for the entirety of the session. I think they gained some valuable information from the presentation, not just for schoolies, but for general life as well.

    Paul White | Groves Christian College

    It is relevant, engaging and targeted appropriately for the audience. It is also very beneficial to include the input from Qld Police Service personnel. Thank you.

    Cheryl Stojanovic | All Hallows' School

    I have been booking these sessions for five years. Angela and Nicola are awesome presenters who really engage with the students.
