School Holiday program


Julia Yeuong, mother of Claire, aged 10

Claire has enjoyed your holiday program immensely. She felt very safe in your care, especially when she was allowed to make mistakes and fail. (She mentioned that all teachers should attend a class by Miss Anderson on how not to lose their cool and be very poised, just like Miss Anderson :)) She had learnt […]

Sandra Turner (Grandmother of Sophie, aged 12, attends Kilvington)

Thank you very much for the gorgeous class photo. Sophie absolutely loved the Masterclass. Each morning she was anxious to get moving so she would not be late, (a great indication of her enjoyment and anticipation). We enrolled Sophie in the SHINE Masterclass as a gift for her birthday, hoping she would enjoy the experience […]

Julie Iannazzone, mum of Allegra, St James PS

I would like to say thank you for being such a wonderful coach and role model these past three days for my daughter Allegra. She has absolutely loved her three days at Shine Academy and you have reinforced so many new skills and strategies which will stay with her for her lifetime. Whilst we try […]

Nicole and Mark George, parents of Chloe, aged 9, Elsternwick PS

Shelly Harris, mum of Ashleigh, aged 11, Caulfield South PS

The difference we have seen in 3 days within your expert care has been incredible. We have been struggling for some time to find support for Ashleigh that would give her the self-confidence and […]

Josette DeGabriele, mother of Nadege, aged 10, Caulfield Junior College

Nadege walked away from Day 1 saying “Mum, I totally love it. I had a beautiful day.” Needless to say the ensuing two days were just as rewarding and fulfilling. While Nadege is a very sociable and outgoing individual, your course helped to solidify some of the topics we had previously discussed when confronted by […]

Kindest regards, Kelli & Dugald

Your thoughtful acknowledgement of our daughter’s strengths over the course of the 3 days has reinforced what we have been sharing with her at home – her sensitivity is not a weakness, rather it is her superpower. Thank you for taking such good care of her and providing her with insights and skills to navigate […]

Joanne, Charlotte’s mum. Charlotte is aged 11 and goes to Haileybury

My daughter attended Shine Masterclass Holiday Program. She thoroughly enjoyed her time there and raved about the food. I was grateful for one less lunch to pack! I noticed immediately that she was making better eye contact with strangers and after the last session she pinned all the lovely comments from the other girls about […]
