Some of the most valuable professional development I have ever undertaken. I found it so useful in both my personal and professional life that (staff) committed to come back during their holiday time to engage in this powerful professional learning. MESH is aimed at building stronger relationships, which after all, is the foundation of all good teaching and (I believe) should be a mandatory part of all teacher training. I cannot recommend it more highly nor the outstanding skills of its highly skilled leader. If you do no other P.D. next year, make sure you do this!’
Jenny Vince, Principal, Mt Faulkner Primary School
‘Personally I found the experience enlightening, challenging, most valuable and rewarding. Great experiential training from people who know their stuff. As a school counsellor it is proving a wonderful pro-active tool – very pertinent and it works! The best value for money PD I’ve found in a long while.’
Alan Dear, Student Counsellor, The Hutchins School
‘This is the best P.D. I’ve done in my 35 years of professional learning.’
Urda Herbst, Northholm Grammar School, Sydney
‘What an amazing experience – personally and professionally! This program can make a huge difference in young people’s lives.’
Julie McClimont, Kangan Batman TAFE, Melbourne
This program has given me the tools to move on with my life and help others heal too. A profoundly moving experience—it’s just wonderful’.
‘It changed my ideas about Youth Work, challenged me to make new changes, and the best part; it gave me the confidence to begin making those changes.’
Shane Stamos, Youth Worker, Moonee Valley City Council Youth Team
‘What can I say? At 45 years of age, this workshop has changed my life. It’s given me the confidence and power to step out of the comfort zone and take the next step. Connecting to youth and their problems is much easier now, especially in dealing with (issues like) drugs and alcohol, family breakdowns, crisis interventions and grief and loss.’
Debbie Groves, School Attendant, Perth Primary School & Founder of the Perth Youth Skate Park
‘If you hadn’t been, you would never believe how powerful the depth… could be. An overwhelming experience never to be forgotten.’
Roxanne Saunders, Assistant Principal, Montello Primary School
‘This is the best training I’ve ever been to, and I’ve attended heaps. It’s the most effective way I’ve found to access senior students ‘where they’re at’. I’ve been searching for this for a long time, and it’s exactly what I’m looking for. Thank you!’
Jan Adams, Chaplain & Pastoral Care Leader, Upper Yarra Secondary College
This is an amazing, worthwhile and enjoyable experience – I’m keen to attend a third time and the positive MESH feedback and experiences my students have had are fantastic – they are asking to come back too! A P.D. everyone should do.’
