Voices of Hope and creating change.
As an Intermediate school guidance counsellor I highly would recommend Jazz Thornton's intermediate programme to any school as an invaluable presentation that not only connects with students, as well as staff in a vibrant, dynamic, engaging, informative and hope-filled way. Jazz's authenticity and charisma had all of our students engaged through laughter, resonance and inspiration as a role model of hope. Her delivery was age and context-appropriate for our school in which many staff and students reported positive feedback after her engagement with us.
One student said she felt, "everyone could relate, that she shared good lessons and to see that good things can come out in the end", another student said she was a "good speaker" multiple staff commented in observing the students full engagement during the presentation, as well as asking when we could have Jazz return back to our school to speak again and how much they appreciated that we had organized her to come and speak.
I would highly recommend Jazz’s presentation that was very appropriate for this age group, with a clear yet very professional message about protecting our students’ wellbeing. She is a gifted speaker, very effervescent, entertaining and humorous, balanced with a component that is serious and a ‘must hear’, for our students.
