Real life skills
Flash forward to 2040. Your child is 25 and making their way in the world. If they learn certain skills now, they'll be set for life, no matter what they do.
In fact, parents on social media say they want their kids to be ‘real-life knowledgeable’...like knowing how to sew on a button, having some ‘go-to’ meals they can cook with their eyes closed, growing as much healthy food as they can, and managing their money.
Yes... spelling, reading, writing and Maths are crucial. We teach those...and extremely well. But we are almost ‘old-fashioned’...teaching real life skills that make our students independent and proud.
We conducted trials in classrooms, and children fed back to us which natural oils blends really helped and why. We recorded their feedback about which blends energised the mind, kept them focused, reduced moments of anxiety, worry or stress, and improved peer interactions.
Armed with this information, we began making soaps, sprays, rollers, and mixing blends for the classroom and at home. We started getting the results we hoped for, and began creating 'Little Hands' designed for children and young adults. The 'Empowering Adults' range came directly after, because grown-ups deserve Hello Luna products too.
We designed product names, created art work, photoshoots, and packaging, held Market Days and sold products on Hello Luna's very own website. All sales help the success of our school.
"We were desperate to help our son’s self-esteem and confidence. Enrolling him at Summit Point restored his belief in himself."
"Being encouraged to demonstrate his knowledge using educational technology has helped remove barriers to my child’s learning and made him less anxious about tests and assessment."
"The teachers at Summit Point go above and beyond to nurture the different learning styles of students."
"Rebecca supported us to understand our child’s strengths and challenges and find a way to foster his love of learning."
"We have been working with Summit for almost a term and my word, our daughter has come a long way since she started at the school."
"It’s a hard decision sending your child to a ‘special’ school, but now we’re out the other side, we realise how much our daughter needed the attention and environment that Summit Point offers."
"Her time at Summit gave our daughter the space and time to learn at her own pace, be recognised for her talents and participate in the running of the school."
"Graduating from Summit, our child is a confident learner and has a range of strategies which have helped her transition to high school."
