Young people today are growing up and inheriting an increasingly complex and competitive world, especially in the areas of learning and technology. Their time and focus is easily consumed by their devices and as educators we are faced with the challenge to make school work more appealing than the latest app.

Glen’s seminar was inspiring, as usual. The girls have been bringing up his suggestions and words of wisdom on a daily basis ever since. It has been very useful in our discussions with the girls during Academic Supervisions. Many of the girls have been talking about making some changes regarding their study habits based on Glen’s advice.

Thank you so much for an amazing session that you had with us today. The moment I came home, I plastered a huge sign on my wall with my proposed ATAR. The goals I wrote now have become so much easier to look at, once I put them in perspective with everything else. Again, a huge thank you for today, I know that EVERYONE enjoyed the day and we were all mind-boggled and buzzing about it until I came home to find people still buzzing about it online.
