‘Vern came to our school and ran engaging Wellbeing sessions with our Grade 6 students over a number of weeks. He also taught them how to lead a workshop in order for them to be able to create their own activities for the Grade 1 students that involved movement and creativity. Vern’s sessions were both educational and fun for all the students and empowered the Grade 6s to build on their leadership capabilities.’
Andrew Schaeche, Principal of White Hills Primary School
