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.

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.

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.

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

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.

HIP delivered workshops to our pupils on different occasions, including sessions to year 9, year
11 and year 12 groups. Although the various sessions focused on different themes, the common thread throughout was a workshop that the pupils could relate to and found enjoyable. The important strategies and key messages taught had a massive impact on our students in the classroom and beyond.

The HIP Psychology pre-exam study skills session was of great benefit to our year 12 pupils. The session helped them develop robust strategies to add value to their preparation, revision and learning environment. There was a nice balance between interaction and group work, which led to high levels of pupil engagement.

HIP delivered workshops to both our year 13s (exam preparation) and year 14s (resilience). The students thoroughly enjoyed and benefited greatly from the workshops. The workshops were value for money. I believe we will see its true benefit in August on Results Day.

“We engaged in HIP sessions focusing on self-esteem and resilience. We found the experience to be very successful and it was very motivational for our children. On the back of this initial session we had HIP back to delver to Primary 5s around antibullying.”
