St Comgall’s Primary School, Bangor
The HIP program was absolutely fantastic, with both pupils and parents raving about the opportunity. All participants left with practical take away strategies to help in dealing with stressful situations and working with confidence. This is a program we will use annually going forward.
Mrs. Cathy Hunter, Principal
Portrush Primary School
Our staff enjoyed a half-day HIP program focussing on culture and the ingredients needed for excellence. The day was facilitated with understanding, clarity, and humour. It left us with robust processes, goals, and plenty to think about going forward.
Mr. Carwyn Guy, Principal
Hazelwood Integrated Primary School, Belfast
After our anti-bullying work with HIP, we now have a group of children who are aware of their behavior and how this impacts on others’ lives. This is a very important concept for us as we are developing young citizens. The success of this session led to us going through the HIP transition program.
Mrs. Patricia Murtagh, Principal
St Colman’s College, Newry
Our year 13 boys and the year 13 girls from Our Lady’s Grammar jointly took part in a HIP motivation workshop. The pupils came away from the session with a greater focus, the ability to prioritise and a sense of purpose for the year ahead. The workshop was very practical with the boys and girls able to relate to it. The session was interactive, educational and enjoyable
Ms. Victoria Archer, Head of Year
Down High School, Downpatrick
We first had HIP Psychology in our school working with our year 14 girls around managing exam pressures. On the back of this successful workshop, we invited HIP Psychology back in to deliver modules to our students around exam preparation and motivation. We have found all sessions to be hugely inspiring and highly beneficial to our students. We would recommend HIP Psychology services to other schools.
