Testimonials

Principal, The Beach School:

Thank you so much for giving our students the opportunity to attend the program. It was commented by staff that it was the best excursion our students have attended for a long time, the content was appropriate and it engaged our students for the whole time [...]. The staff came back invigorated and full of praise of the program and it generated some great conversations and ongoing lessons for the students.

Executive Dean and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Faculty of Education and Arts, Edith Cowan University:

The Courage to Care exhibition and program is life-changing – it resonates with students, teachers and the general public alike, and its impact is powerful. Uniquely among social tolerance education programs, it at once raises awareness of the effects of discrimination, prejudice and bullying, encourages empathy, and empowers participants to not be bystanders, but to take positive action. Courage to Care’s message – that each individual can make a difference – is universal and should be heard by students and adults across Australia.

As an educator, I can’t recommend the program highly enough.

Assistant Principal, Manly West Public School:

Visiting the exhibition was such an amazing experience and I know from student and parent feedback that it had a profound effect on all the children (and myself and the other teachers).

Thank you so much for providing the opportunity for us to attend and the time and effort your wonderful volunteers spent with our students.

I can’t recommend your program highly enough and hope you visit the area again sometime to keep educating the next generation of the importance of having the courage to care.

Student Welfare Coordinator and Head of PDHPE, The Forest High School:

The feedback from all the students and staff has been very positive. As the school’s Welfare Coordinator I will be referring to the Courage to Care experience on any ongoing basis with this year group, especially as the issue of bullying arises. I thank you for broadening my skill and experience base.

Principal, East Hills Boys High School:

Our entire student population visited the Courage to Care programme held at the Hurstville Regional Museum. [...]

Your organisation’s programme provides students with a wonderful method to reflect upon their own, and other people’s lives and experiences, and shows how anyone can make a difference if they have the courage and fortitude to act.

Teacher, Sacred Heart Primary School:

From a teacher’s perspective – I feel that this is the most worthwhile unit I have taught this year. [...]

Thank you again for your incredible work.

Teacher, St Mary’s School Manly:

[...] it was really a wonderful day. The children were very inspired, moved and encouraged. The parents with us were really blown away. [...] Our thanks to all the wonderful volunteers you have, it is really special to have them share their experiences. [...] We all wish you great success with the exhibition and have already recommended it to anyone we talk to.

Dean of Primary, St Augustine’s College:

It was a very worthwhile and extremely well run event. Congratulations on delivering such a meaningful and educational workshop. The boys from St Augustine’s certainly benefited from this experience.

Head of Secondary, Newington College:

Our boys were truly privileged to share in the opportunity of mixing with such an eclectic group of individuals and benefit first hand from their understanding that society relies on cooperation, communication and strong inter-personal relationships based around respect for others at all times.
