Staff Testimonials

The Peer power team have worked with students, student leaders and the staff at The Gap SHS for the last 15 years. During this time the team have been instrumental in developing leaders and assisting our community to evolve our comprehensive student leadership program to develop the leaders for now and into the future. Recently our key staff and students have completed a full review of leadership development programs available to schools.  The Gap SHS will continue to partner with Peer power as they are the clear leader in this field. 
Anne McLauchlan, Principal, The Gap SHS


We could not have asked more of the Peer Power team who, exuded enthusiasm, a flexible approach and professionalism from the moment we engaged with them to design the program through to the delivery of the program to our students who responded so positively to the program, with some of our more disengaged students commenting on the value of day.
Darren Hutton, Head of Middle & Senior School, Bundaberg Christian College

I have worked (or ‘been associated’) with Peer Power for twenty years which is a reflection of the high regard we hold for Michael Knight and his very capable team. Their workshops are informative, entertaining and engaging for the students and the ideal preparation for them as Senior Leaders within the College.
David Pavish, Assistant Principal, Cannon Hill Anglican College

Peer Power are highly professional in their approach.  At Holland Park SHS our long connection (since 2006) with Michael and the Peer Power group has developed a positive, impactful program that has allowed all students to identify personal characteristics that get celebrated throughout the year.  The developmental aspects of their program and the way it gets delivered are fantastic and they enable students to connect with each other. 
Graham Lobegeiger, Dean of Senior Students, Holland Park SHS

Peer Power has a unique way of tapping in to what matters to students. They always find the right tone and the right pitch to convince our young women they have the potential to lead and the skills they need to make the difference they wish to see.
Wendy Lauman, Principal, St Hilda’s School

Peer Power seminars engage students in leadership conversations and then equip them with the practical skills to embrace and excel in leadership roles.
Dr Regan Neumann, Exec Principal, Kelvin Grove State College

Over the last three years as the Yr11 Co-ordinator here at Holland Parks SHS I have been astounded by how successful the Seminars run by the Peer Power group have been for the students.  After each Seminar we read the student feedback sheets and have had some amazing response to the seminars.  I use the Master Disaster seminar to really kick off and shape the orientation program and support network we run at HPSHS  which we have found to very useful also.
Ben Habermehl, Yr11 Co-ordinator Holland Park SHS

I have had the pleasure of working with Peer Power for almost two decades. Peer Power has always been willing to listen to feedback and to alter their excellent programs to suit our idiosyncratic needs.
Anthony Micallef, Headmaster, Brisbane Grammar School

Entertaining and engaging seminars that provide a productive language framework to use with our students! Students loved the experiences and the activities provided many bonding moments between them! Totally recommend!
Sally Vellar, HOD – Social Science & Resource Centre, Coolum SHS

We have engaged Peer Power to work with our students for a number of years. They have a wonderful way of connecting with young people and helping them to explore and recognise the unique qualities they have as individuals, further enhancing these qualities, and using these to guide and lead themselves and others.

Thank you for your another motivating seminar with our student leaders. The students were captivated by your ideas and are already making a difference with their actions and involvement at school.

Peer Power has been an important component of the Perth College InsideOut programme since 2011. We have been delighted with the personal growth of our students as they have worked through a series of workshops during their journey through the Senior School. Working closely with the talented PeerPower team as they craft and adapt workshops to meet the needs of our community has been fabulous. We love working with such a flexible, skilled and dynamic team.
Deb Perich, InsideOut Director, Perth College

We have been working with Peer Power for many years. The team continues to excel at communicating important ideas and concepts to young people in relevant and engaging ways. We have found their programs to be a of great benefit to our College community, not just because they are excellent presentations. But because they desire to work with our College towards a desired outcome. The result is we not only see, but experience the difference in our students lives in practical, and oftentimes life changing ways.
