Testimonials

Principal – One of the real challenges of school education is motivating boys. Contemporary pedagogical practice doesn’t always accommodate the learning characteristics of boys.

Powerhouse Programs have been able to connect with our boys to inspire an inner strength that has them highly engaged at school. The “Real Power” program has convinced them of their unique potential and enabled them to draw on a new-found self belief. Our boys are confident and motivated to want to achieve. They have developed team spirit and a positive attitude.

These outstanding results have been achieved through techniques that fire the boyish powers for competition, mateship and strength – but strength of character. The leaders appeal to that hard edge nature of their self image to mould and develop worthy citizenship and core values for young men. They do this with their rapport and sensitivity to their cause. They have a deep understanding and belief in the boys that is conveyed through a powerful workshops which are adventure-based and reflect on life learning. They are amazing role models.

I recommend this course as an essential part of a holistic education for boys of all ages. At our school we are not failing our boys due to access to this inspiring program.

Counsellor – Real Power has been running for our year 7 boys each year for the past 3 years.  The leaders have an amazing gift for helping boys of that age to reflect and to grow as young men.  The boys love the program, enjoying the fun and challenging activities, but also actively participating in group discussions and reflecting on their feelings and behaviors.
One of the teachers commented to me after the first session that at the beginning he watched what was happening as they boys played some cool games and thought ‘I could be doing this’ but then as he watched the boys sit and open up in discussion, honestly sharing their feelings, he realised that something special was happening, which is very difficult to create in a classroom environment.
There is strong support from the parents for this program.  Every comment and response I have had from parents, boys and staff has been positive, and they are very keen for the program to continue to be a highlight of the senior year of primary school.  In an environment where many young men are missing significant male role models, this program is an amazing and valuable opportunity for them to enjoy their maleness, and to develop positive image of what a real man is.
