What educators are saying:

"I think it’s really good to have (PLS) because it models what positive behaviour is. Like some of the home lives of our kids wouldn’t have a lot of positive behaviour at home so it’s good that we don’t have to sort of start from scratch – Oh, how do I teach that? Or how do I teach self-talk?"

Quote marks

"I have a few kids in my class that struggle with focusing and really putting their head down and getting their work done. So …when we were doing focus I just felt like it just had a real shift in my classroom. I was surprised by how positively it was received from the get go from the students. I was hoping for that, but I was still surprised by how much the kids loved it.”

Quote marks

“I have a few anxious kids in my class, but I have noticed a change in them with their confidence even just recognising as well that they have the potential to do something whereas before they would’ve just not even tried.It was a really beautiful and easy way to get to know the kids at another level and I think as a teacher at a personal level that helped me in the classroom because it helped me work out where they were coming from for a lot of different things, it was an open place where they could open up.”
