Thank you. This was very helpful. I’m so happy that I attended. I feel more at ease after listening to this talk. I have gained many helpful hints.
Extremely helpful. Glad I came. Can’t wait to purchase the ‘High School Rocks’ book and read. Jenny is fabulous - very caring, friendly and patient.
Thank you! The workshop was very helpful and reassuring. Great tips were given. My son was also very anxious about high school before today. After today’s student workshop he came home very excited and confident about high school.
Fabulous! So informative, lots to take in and reflect upon… thank you. We will be so much better prepared having attended this session.
The workshop was very informative. Presentation was great with a good amount of humour and personal stories added to the authenticity of the information.
