"Wendy dealt very sensitively with all topics and used humour well to enlighten the mood and help the students feel comfortable discussing any subject. The students are very sad that the lesson had to end."
A. Kingston, St Andrew's School

"I had some feedback from this year's session from a parent. I have a boy in my class whose mum describes as "quite prudish" and she said that he hasn't let anyone see him without his clothes since he was about 4. From the sessions with Josie, he realised that one of his testicles wasn't in the right position. He told his mum, who took him to the doctor and then he had a little operation to correct it. She said they would have never known until it was too late without the Growth and Development sessions."

"Josie was down to earth & entertaining as usual. Pitched perfectly @ the level of the students."
Year 7 teacher Cornerstone College


"THANK YOU! I feel as though I was very naive. Absolute eye opener. I went home and discussed with my husband our plan of "attack" for our 10 year old and 8 year old. Really made me think! Thank you!"
Teacher Linden Park Primary (Overexposed & Under Prepared Teacher PD workshop)


"The students were talking a lot about pornography after today's session. Josie, you are an excellent presenter. Making the students feel comfortable & adding humour all while talking about some interesting topics. Great job once again."
R Book Brighton Primary School


"My year 6/7 class just completed a 4 week Personal and Social Development course with Kidz Biz Ed. I would certainly recommend the course and found the content to be informative as well as engaging.

Expectations for participating were made clear and students felt comfortable asking questions and being involved in the discussion. The topics covered were particularly relevant and of interest to teenagers and were presented using a PowerPoint display on the interactive whiteboard.

An excellent range of courses offered by an accommodating and professional presenter."
D. Williams, Brighton Primary School


"My kids (Year 6) have absolutely loved the Growth and Development lessons presented by Wendy Hill. Using a great mix of hands-on activities, videos, real-life photographs and informative discussion, Wendy has sensitively taken them out of their comfort zone, yet, at the same time making their learning a fun and rewarding experience.

As Issey writes,

"Every week I was looking forward to the lessons, because they were great fun and I really learnt a lot about all the things we would be going through. It has taught me to accept all the things that happen to your body, and now I am not afraid to talk about them."

And from Charlotte,

"I want to say I've learnt heaps and thank you, Wendy, for teaching us about growing up and for making it fun."
H. Birbeck, Highgate Primary School


"Kidz Biz Ed provided Growth and Development courses tailored to the needs of Year 6 and 7 students at Linden Park Primary School in accordance with the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education. Lessons were presented in an engaging, open and non-threatening manner and students responded positively to the content and participated actively in the discussions and group activities which evolved. Our students not only enjoyed the lessons but embraced the opportunity to learn about social, personal and sexuality development. We have experienced continuing success over the years and we will incorporate Kidz Biz Ed into our programs for many years to come."
K. Lloyd / J. Edwards, Linden Park Primary School


"Wendy Hill provided from Kidz Biz Ed provided my class with an interesting relevant delivery of aspects of Growth and Development suitably tailored to their Year 6/7 level.

The students were engaged by Wendy’s presentation techniques, which included PowerPoint programs, hands-on activities and games, DVDs and discussions. Wendy provided an informative, structured delivery intertwined with lighthearted moments that students warmed to and felt relaxed and comfortable with.

Wendy also provides a very useful teacher resource pack that enables classroom follow up activities and further student reading.

My class has all expressed through discussion and their writing how informative and fun they thought their Kidz Biz Ed sessions were and I can certainly recommend them!"
T. Butler, Year 6/7 Class Teacher, Braeview Primary School


"The students written reflection following each of the sessions demonstrated that although they sometimes felt embarrassed, they had learned a lot of new information that they felt was important."
H Wood St Andrew's School


"When thinking about Growth and Development lessons students can have a preconceived idea of ooh gross! However through the Kidz Biz sessions with Wendy my Year 6/7 class found it engaging, interesting and at times humorous. Wendy is extremely professional and my class felt comfortable to participate in the different activities and meaningful discussions. My students enjoyed learning about growing up and learning about the possible challenges they may face, such as peer pressure, body image and cyber bullying including strategies on how to cope with these issues. A valuable learning program. Thank you."
K. Noel, Norwood Primary School


"Glad we did the four sessions. Also much better to have straight Yr 6 and Yr 7 groups."
A Davis Stirling East Primary


"Wendy provided a programme that students both enjoyed and could relate to. She used humour in order to make students feel comfortable to explore this subject that they are fascinated about. Her direct approach enabled Wendy to talk frankly about sensitive topics. Students were initially anxious but this quickly changed as they realised that they were learning much and that they were able to talk frankly themselves and receive relevant, accurate information. Wendy connected with all students and quickly developed a positive rapport with them. A variety of techniques were used. Students worked in small groups, viewed multimedia, listened and discussed. Students organized themselves so they were well and truly ready to start as soon as Wendy entered the room. We use this programme as a strong basis for our Health focus."
M. Whelan, Woodend Primary School


"Excellent workshops at the student's level of understanding & provision of adequate question time & sharing. Well paced with excellent visual presentations& content which stimulated student engagement."
M Little Glen Osmond Primary School


"My year 5 students loved their time with Wendy. She engaged them in hands-on activities and powerful discussions - while making the students feel comfortable and relaxed. I admired her sense of humour and light hearted approach in dealing with sensitive topics. Wendy has attended our school for many years now and Growth and Development has become an integral part of our Term 1 curriculum. Her activities vary each year and build upon the students' prior learning/understandings."
M. Ruolle, Norwood Primary School


"Confident presentation, highly factual, great selection of supporting PowerPoint/clips. Addressed children's questions/concerns respectfully. Suitable humour."
H Buck Flagstaff Hill Primary


"Thank you Wendy, very informative. Your talks are always amazing. Really scary topic! I'll be talking to my 16 yo & 19 yo tonight."
Teacher Cowandilla Primary School (Overexposed & Under Prepared Teacher PD workshop)
