What people have to say about Highway Heroes & BEST Programs 4 Kids
This is the BEST Social & Emotional Skills program I have run in 20 years. The kids love it! Our school is BUZZING – kids, parents and teachers! You just have to get on this Highway!
This fantastic resource is packed full of strategies and skills to equip primary students to handle friendship glitches, flareups and conflicts before they reach high school.
We simply can’t thank you enough for engaging, enlightening and empowering our staff. What an outstanding PD you ran for us and I was so sorry when it was over. Believe me – this is high praise as I normally, secretly work through PD’s. Not this one though, you had me on the edge of my seat. Amazing and inspiring
Highway Heroes offers a wealth of knowledge, tools and advice. It stimulates thinking, challenges you to match reality with answers and possibilities, while equipping and empowering you to address the wellbeing of every child. Our children will be able to realise their potential with confidence by using this programme.
