In response to our commitment in promoting growth and excellence for all, a highly interactive soft skills outcomes base programme was rolled out at Wesfleur Primary School in Atlantis on 13th, 14th and 20th September 2017.
The programme, an integrated approach that promotes and encourages personal development, positive health, building strong and lasting relationships and teaching the benefits of working well with money matters.
Furthermore, the programme seeked to help delegates to become more insightful and to gain emotional wisdom to respond to everyday challenges.
Delegate Comment Extract:
“My life has been changed, inspired and redirected in so many ways through such excellent, informative, positive, inspiring training. Samantha was at her best, she facilitates excellently and the slides shown made me think twice about life. The jar demonstration is where I am in my life and it opened up my mind to be the best I can be. It is well to have continuous training like this to meet the needs of parents and to build better lives, families and communities.”
