The Star Series is about learning, having fun and developing good habits at an early age.


It's that simple. Research shows that between the ages of 9-12 is the time frame in which most students start to lose their passion for learning. This is the time where learning is no longer enjoyable, it's pressure-packed with tests and expectations on student performance are rising steeply.


Our response was to create a series of training programs to help young people face the new pressures of school with a new skill set. The Star Series mixes learning to learn skills, life skills and leadership skills to give students an advantage both in and out of the classroom. Each 2 day event covers two learning themes and each theme is tackled with a variety of methods. Everything is fully interactive, useful and fun. The students learn new habits quickly and go back to home and school with renewed confidence and a proactive mindset.
