What parents and educators are sharing with us

We love what we do and we love hearing the heart-warming stories from parents and teachers about the impact URSTRONG is having on the special kids in their lives!

URSTONG has not only empowered our students with the life skills to foster healthy relationships, it has also empowered our teachers and parents.

Daniel Sandral, Head of Junior School
MLC School, Sydney

Thank you for having the wisdom to offer URSTRONG to boys as well as girls. I see the complexities in boys’ friendships are often underappreciated or mishandled.

Michelle, Michael’s mom

URSTRONG fits in seamlessly to our whole school approach to wellbeing, equipping students with a language that creates healthy, respectful friendships.

David Kolpak, Head of Junior Years

The skills we learned are still helping us communicate about friendships over a year later. They will help guide us both in making friendships for the rest of our lives.

Melanie Tewman

URSTRONG has enriched and complimented our school values with great language, practices and perspective.
