Our Awards and Achievements…
“I wanted to thank you, and your team, for the way they approached yesterday’s Student Wellbeing Day.
Their flexibility, patience and genuine care enabled our students to receive some important messages. You know all too well what our students are dealing with, which sometimes makes it difficult to engage the, for the most part this wasn’t an issue yesterday.”
Jeremy Bruce (Head of Student Services, Cecil Andrews College)
“Adam, Your passion and ability to engage students and help them to see that they are both important and resilient is inspiring and we at Lynwood value your work.”
Hayatti Miller (Head of Year 10, Lynwood SHS)
“Adam Przytula’s presentation on bullying is outstanding. From start to finish our students were fixated by his every word, as he reflected on his own bullying experiences and that of many others. He delivers all the key messages about bullying in a clear and engaging way. Adam’s presentation demands that all students reflect on their own behaviour and challenges them to become part of the solution to bullying rather than part of the problem. His presentation will make a difference to the students at your school and their attitude towards bullying. A ‘must see’ presentation!”
Paul Cooke (Head of Health, Melville SHS)
“Thanks Adam and your team of workers. Your professional, caring and targeted approach to a whole range of ‘prickly’ subjects is well appreciated.”
Mark Pettit (Head of Middle School, Kalamunda SHS)

Skye (Yr9, Lumen Christi College)

Jessica (Yr 11 Student)

“I just wanted to say thank you again to you guys. I was at the self esteem presentation at ocean reef shs and never really considered having a low self esteem until now and it was a huge eye opener. I’ve always been the quiet anxious kid who wasn’t happy with himself and hearing some of the ways that i can change this has made me realise that it was about time i made a few changes. Thank you so much, you have no idea how much you have helped.”
Kyle (Yr 11 Student)
“Thank you for coming today. I honestly feel that you and your team have help and effected my year, and especially me. I have been going through my own tough time with putting myself down, and over the last few weeks I have been thinking of going to the councillor at school but today after all your chats, I decided to and I’ll be seeing them soon to get help. I can honestly say you and your team, showed me so much about myself and my peers. You are truly an amazing group and I can’t thank you enough because I’m sure you have help so many more people facing issues bigger then mine. You and your team are honestly Heroes! Thank you again on behalf of everyone at kolbe!”
