Delivering the R2R program for the cohort of students at my school has been an amazing experience. I never come away from a day of teaching without being surprised. The connections that students are able to make with each other during lessons is a very special thing to be a part of. Watching the level of students’ anxiety reduce over the term of the R2R teaching block is quite remarkable. Watching the students’ rhythmic skills and confidence develop from engaging in the lessons is unmeasurable. We get to see transferable effects into the classroom on levels of concentration to more engagement and calmer students. Michelle Griffin, Redcliffe Special School
Wonderful; it has equipped me with some great fun & thought-provoking tools to explore young people’s lives. Warren Adair, Youth worker, Gippsland, Victoria

I loved these two days – I have grown both professionally and personally as a result of this program, Sue Waterhouse, Principal, Merriwa PS, WA
Rhythm2Recovery extended my previous training with Simon and his DRUMBEAT program, furthering my repertoire and introducing a highly flexible approach to help children build effective personal and pro-social skills, Donna Forfylow, Principal, Mount Royal School
The most enjoyable and relevant training I have had – I feel inspired both professionally and personally, Sofia Awadalla, School Counsellor, Catholic Education
Why didn’t I know about this course earlier? My children are now 18 and 21yrs old and I desperately needed this when they were 5 and 8yrs old. This course would have changed their lives and mine dramatically. It has given me an insight into the thoughts, actions and behaviour of not just my own children but myself. I now know what a powerful tool it is for teachers. Absolutely brilliant!! Parent and Chaplin Yatala Gold Coast
The Rock and Water program I found to be extremely motivating and educational on a personal and professional level. I am inspired to make my teaching more fun, practical and engaging for boys and girls. My tolerance of boys I feel will be much greater due to a better understanding of why they behave like they do. The reflection personally on my attitudes towards others and ideas has been challenged and it is great to realise you are much stronger than you thought. Sometimes in life you lose yourself and forget the importance of self-respect and self-belief.
