“This is the first time that ‘Amazing Me’ has come to Randwick Public School and I highly recommend it. Topics such as our bodies, reproduction, and the ‘what, when, whys, and hows?’ of puberty were discussed in a way that empowered every listener. A sometimes very difficult subject became normal as Rowena, in her own unique way, facilitated an invaluable lifelong conversation between parents and their children. The conversations, smiles and laughs were so great to see! Rowena also ran an Amazing Me day programs in which all the students were engaged and inspired to be amazing.”
— Rachael Chisholm, Assistant Principal of Randwick Public School
“I am a teacher and I loved the way that I could use the Amazing Me evening programs which I think are essential in conjunction with a program that we already use at our school.”
— Teacher

There was nothing but praise for Amazing Me from all in attendance.”
— Steven Dodd, Principal of Berowra Christian School

— Peter Slattery, Director of the Macdonald College Junior School)
“Rowena’s ‘Amazing Me’ talks are engaging and entertaining. Her flexible, warm and funny approach leaves both parents and children feeling confident, normal, empowered and prepared.

I’m reasonably open with my 11 year old son but you have filled in so many gaps - thanks.”
— Parent
“Amazing Me was truly amazing!! As a mother of a year 6 boy talking about the facts of life can be daunting. Where do you start? What do you say? My son and I were nervous about the program but it has changed the way we talk about these subjects. It’s a normal part of life so we talk about it like its normal. I am so thankful I attended the Amazing me night program.”
— Parent
“Rowena’s talk was funny, frank and factual.  It has initiated conversations with our 10 year old boy about the facts of life and given him an appreciation of how amazing his body is.  I would highly recommend Rowena and her Amazing Me talks and regularly tell friends how great it was.  They would like to hear her speak to their children too.”
— Parent
“I really didn’t want to go to Amazing Me. I was nervous, but I’m really happy I did because I learnt a lot and I am not nervous anymore.
I feel good and it’s going to be ok.”
