Senior School Program (Years 10–12)

Engaging 75-minute Seminars
Up to 200 Students

Australia Wide

Our Senior School program is designed to uniquely target the challenges faced throughout these years with age-relevant information.

This program consists of a Year 10, 11 and 12 seminar and a choice of either a parent or teacher seminar; thus, four seminars in total.

Each student seminar will be tailored through pre-survey data collected from your students to speak directly to the behaviours and attitudes of your students in comparison to other young people in the same age bracket. A report can then be provided to compare the attitude and possible changes in behaviour after each session.
