“The presentation and activities were fun and engaging, supporting students to develop their leadership skills and the ability to be able to see things from others points of view, as well as developing self belief and ownership. 

Activities required students to work together, appreciate each other and focused on students developing skills so they can apply gratitude, kindness, empathy, positive reflection and service in their own life and around school.”
