“We have been delighted with the progress that ***** has made while he has been at Mt Hobson. He has become an independent learner, his social skills with his peers have improved and he seems more capable of tackling subjects that he finds difficult. Mt Hobson has really done marvelous things for him.”

“The class size is great. Children cannot ‘hide’ or ‘slip through the cracks’. We like the work ethic being encouraged. Wholesome activities. Good culture. The small school size means that all children know each other, making it a more comfortable and a less intimidating environment.”

“Because of the small size of the school the students are well known by the teachers and cared for. We are confident that the Principal, Academic Managers, Community Liaison Managers and teachers know what is going on not only within the classroom and playground but also at home. This along with the zero tolerance to bullying and swearing provides the students with a safe environment. It’s great to have a happy child at the end of the day.”

“What you have at your school is extremely special and should be preserved at all costs. To provide a school environment that achieves educational goals, but most of all is done so in a nurturing environment, gives teenagers the confidence to try new things and overcome fears that most of my generation were taught to conceal in clever ways, but to our overall collective detriment. It is simplistic to tell children to be more risk adverse, but to provide them with the platform to do so allows this to happen of its own accord.”
