Thank you so much. For today's class, Amanda. My son really enjoyed it and got a great deal out of it. Our reception was a little dodgy so definitely hats off to you for keeping his attention for so long with intermittent sound! See you next week and thank you again.

The introduction of Role Models workshops has had an enormously rewarding impact on our Prep 6 pupils. The flexibility of the school being able to choose the topics based on the cohort is very beneficial and the feedback from the children was more than encouraging. Most pupils rated that Role Models has given them better resources to deal with problems that may arise in the future or the confidence to do and be what they want. The weekly communication to parents has been received well and they are eager to get involved from home. We are very much looking forward to working with Role Models again this year and hope that we will be able to extend the workshops to other age groups as well.

Absolutely fantastic course. Hugo loved every minute of it. It would have been good to have a parent 1-2-1 after discussing the report as we are not as knowledgeable as you are, and therefore talking about a few points to continue at home would have been useful. Please let me know when you plan to do more in the Shrewsbury area.

James really enjoyed 'how' you taught him resilience (via games, etc) vs. a traditional method that doesn't resonate as much. Following, we saw him act out very independent actions whereby before the camp he was very hesitant . Strongly recommend!

We are so lucky to have Amy mentoring my son in two of his weekly sessions. She is a positive influence and provides just the right amount of challenge and encouragement and praise for him to slowly grow. We are very happy that he gets to see her on a regular basis as this helps them get to know each other and for my son to confide more or feel more comfortable in the interactions. We think that these sessions will have a beneficial effect over a period of time. It is a time for reflection about our actions and everyday thoughts about life. So glad we signed him up.

Role Models webinars are highly engaging and informative; they balance relevant educational theory and pedagogy alongside helpful takeaway strategies that our parents and staff have been able to put into practice straight away. Role Models are skilled at making sessions bespoke to the needs of your school community and feedback on their sessions has been overwhelmingly positive.

First of all, we already know that these programs are packed of really well-working, useful and proven content since our daughter had joined courses on-site and meanwhile also online a good couple of times over years. Impressive, that with expectations set so high, how much also this latest course took her way with inspiration, again. The highly skilled and ambitious role model and the way they the content would come across even in an online session were very effective and the results impressive, once more. She grows in confidence with every course and session. Awesome.

96% of children enjoyed or really enjoyed the courses, 82% of the parents felt that the skills their child developed on their course are important or very important to their future. We agree and found that teachers learned from the experience too and other Wellington College schools, hearing of the success of the programme, have adopted Role Models too.

My daughter really enjoyed the course and was totally engaged despite initial reservations. Amy delivered the sessions in a sensitive and appropriate way making sure that my daughter was fully included despite her communication difficulties and access issues. She has taken to heart the learnings from the course which, I hope, will stand her in good stead in the future. Thank you Role Models for a truly excellent course.

Even though my 7 yo daughter only attended the last 2 sessions, but I highly recommend this to everyone. My daughter learns so much and she came out from the class feeling more confident. She applies the teachings in her everyday life when the negative thoughts come and she was bummed to hear that it was the last class. She wanted to take more and she doesn't even think that this class is that long. She truly enjoy the 1 hour session, fully engaged, and loving every minute. 5 stars for Billy the Bunny! <3

The class was really engaging and Claudia really enjoyed it. She struggles with all kinds of mistakes and I think hearing about the mindset to take in this kind of environment is something that will really help her. Although I was slightly reticent about concentration for a 6yo with it being an hour long class, the way it's broken down into segments really helps to hold attention.

Abstract but vital concepts like grit, resilience, growth mindset, power of positive thinking... are hard topics to teach and get across but just thinking and knowing about these terms and concepts can help in real life situations, even if applied retrospectively.

The course was instrumental in providing my son and me with the necessary push to shift his confidence. The content appears well thought of, clear, easy to absorb and very interesting. Each session covered clear, relevant and very insightful topics. The delivery was excellent - very clear explanations, backed up by examples. The end of the day feedback is ideal, since I can help me with the implementation of the newly acquired knowledge. Last, but not least - Ms. Sally was fantastic!

What an excellent course! Our instructor, Ms. Courtney is marvelous. My bright kid is a perfectionist and this life skills course is what he needed the most - the skills of critical thinking and problem solving, I think will be extremely helpful when he encounters frustrations. the content of this course is well structured and the instructor interacted with my kid in a very interesting way. The instructor had a good rapport with my kid and gave feedback and supporting top to me right after each class so we can practice it in our daily life

My daughter actively participated with her own thoughts. So I trust she really grew, by being more confident to remember and apply her skills in real-life situations. It's always a pleasure to listen to how she referred to her sessions afterward - she was cheerful and it seems the session was like a valve where she would be able to review situations she hadn't been able to completely reflect with anyone else before. Thanks for providing so much valuable and experienced input and working with my daughter this week!

I was so impressed both with the content on the day and in the follow ups. My daughter has been quoting the terminology ever since and is doing all she can to push herself into the learning zone and use the tools that were provided. It really was fantastic and I just can't rate it highly enough. Miss Catherine was also really engaging and kind. The follow up report was really tailored to my daughter and in depth and I really felt that Miss Catherine had understood her.

This was such a wonderful class. My daughter liked it so much she even joined one week while we were on a vacation. It is worth to take all 10 lessons. The teacher emailed feedback with follow up activities every week. We are actually going to start doing one activity a week for the next 10 weeks to reinforce the concepts. They go over growth mindset, gratitude, positive thinking, resilience. We are a very growth mindset family, but my oldest has a very fixed mindset and having another caring adult sharing and practicing these skills was very helpful to reinforce these messages!

Our 6-year old has been working with teacher Abi for a few months now, and we can see quite a change in how she handles conflicts and acts on issues that bother them, with confidence. Teacher Abi's influence has been very impactful and we are truly grateful. She also sends after-session reports in great length describing her approach during the session, what our child was asked to respond to, and provides additional materials to follow up with. It's been a pleasure working with her.

Thank you so much. I can’t tell you how much Anna has enjoyed this course. It was a massive step for her - she is quite anxious, scared of new experiences and has never been on a course on her own before. She absolutely loved it and I am so pleased with the techniques you have taught her, as well as the fact that I am aware of them from your feedback, so I can keep on coaching her about growth mindset etc as we go. She is starting a new school in September, on her own, without any of her current classmates also going, and having done this course so successfully really paves the way for the transition.

I am so happy that my son is taking this class! We're only 3 classes in so far, but every time he finishes, he tells me it was a 10 out of 10 and the best class ever. He's learning a lot of the things that I've been trying to teach (gratitude journal, making mistakes is okay, the power of yet) but quite honestly sometimes it helps more coming from someone else than mom ;) Beyond that, the teacher is amazing! She is so sweet, has a way of keeping things interesting for the kids, and she's really created great lessons that go beyond what I have thought to teach him. There are also printable materials which I think is great. Thank you so much Ms. Amanda!

My 8 year old daughter is introverted in some societal situations and not able to “free herself” in expressing verbally and emotionally. She is very obedient and always follow my order and she called me (I am her mom), the leader of the family. I really wish she could be confident about her personal strengths and be able to utilize them in different aspects of learning. Through this class, she was able to identify her interpersonal characters well and she had a lot of fun with Ms. Amanda. I enrolled my daughter in more classes because we really like this class providing really unique help for kids.

Here’s a big, belated thank you for all your hard work with Helena at the Role Models camp last week. She absolutely loved it What a great mix of activities and crafts – all with such well thought-out themes. It was great to be able to find out what she got up to via your daily emails, including photos – though have to say that she filled us in also having clearly enjoyed each day! Helena said she recited her Tiger Tiger poem to the group – great news if so, as she can tend to be on the timid side, but she did want to impress you in particular Having missed so much classroom time this past year, it was great for her to have an extra, somewhat structured but fun, week of learning experiences – thank you!
