Keep doing this amazing work you do because I know you change lives every day and it is truly extraordinary I cannot express how much I needed this.
Thank you so much for an amazing camp! It was so much fun and I loved learning so many new things everyday! You guys were really funny, kind and caring. You have changed each and every one of us in grade 9. I am so grateful to have gone on the camp and I am super happy I am closer with everyone in my grade. Would love to do that camp all over again!
I have gained a better idea of adulthood and formed greater friendships in my unit
As a father and a headmaster, Arne’s work in adolescent development has informed both my parenting style and my attitude to teaching and learning. I was thrilled to be able to engage Arne to deliver workshops and seminars to BGS staff, parents and boys as part of the School’s wider commitment to student wellbeing.
The Rites of Passage Institute have developed and operated stimulating workshops for staff and students at Penola Catholic College throughout 2018. Their intimate understanding of adolescents in the contemporary world shapes their programs to cultivate strategies for student self-management and genuine personal growth. We have seen improved self-awareness and levels of maturity in our students, supporting them to navigate through a challenging world.
I learnt a lot about others and the people who took it made everyone feel safe and secure.
Thank you so much to you and your awesome team of facilitators, Joel! It was a privilege to participate in your workshops as a staff member. The facilitation skills of your team were excellent! The initial feedback from students has been very positive – it will be interesting to see the formal feedback, but according to the students I have spoken with it ticked all boxes – was fun, engaging, challenging & worth giving up 2 days of school for!!
Throughout 2018 we really expanded our work into schools around the country. We see school communities as the perfect environment to implement Rite of Passage experiences an embed them as part of the culture.
By doing so we are creating lasting cultural change that will not only bring out the best in young people but enhance the generations to come.
