Post Training gratitude from dqps principal, vice principal & Hod

"Sha-En effectively took us through the theory behind Positive Education and how it can be used in practice, both as an individual and as a teacher. She used a repertoire of strategies to reinforce how it can enhance our relationship with our pupils. Teachers came out of her sessions feeling more enriched! The success of Sha-En's sessions came from the clarity of communication with the staff, the ability to relate to them giving authentic examples of herself as a practitioner in class and the passion in her delivery!"
