Stories & Testimonials
“To all the staff involved in the Comet program, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for supporting our son Tom to complete his Certs II and III. Incredibly to us, Tom is now planning to attend University this coming semester through an alternative entry pathway and it is all thanks to you guys.
Tom won’t mind me telling you that he found traditional high school completely bewildering – having to adapt to different teachers’ expectations and styles every hour or so as lessons changed was overwhelmingly difficult for him, and not long after he started in that system the strain and his distress at being unable to cope with it began to tell. His self-confidence and self-esteem hit an all-time low. We tried home schooling, and although it was much better for his psychological/emotional wellbeing in one sense, it was very isolating. Comet was the perfect solution: a safe, nurturing, but disciplined place in which our beloved child – for whom we kind of thought education was lost forever – could learn effectively.
We of course are hugely proud of Tom for taking what to him was a massive risk in trying the program out, but we also absolutely give enormous credit to the program staff for welcoming and ‘seeing’ him, and for supporting him so magnificently. He has really loved coming to the program and we are so grateful to everyone there: the team enabled Tom to access learning again and thanks to you all, he has been steered back towards a future he desperately wanted to be his but didn’t think would be possible.” – Tim & Sara
