“His energy can be focused on learning and not worrying”

“His energy can be focused on learning and not worrying”

Seven Oaks School would have been off my radar had it not been recommended by a leading Christchurch businesssoman, whose son had attended. I am so grateful she did. It is probably best to sum up in the words of my son: “I really like Seven Oaks School because at my last school I could not learn much in a big class because there were so many distractions. Mostly everyone was mean to me, including some teachers. Seven Oaks makes me feel safe and accepted, even when I find things hard. They listen to my ideas, so I listen to them. I now want to learn more because I do not have to worry about being judged because the teachers and students understand we are all different. Seven Oaks School is like my family and community.” My son is now doing well academically because his energy can be focused on learning and not worrying about being singled out because he got something wrong. Often Seven Oaks adapt tutoring to real-world applications. To me this is brilliant, because as someone who is fully qualified in two professions, I know you apply a very small percentage of your curriculum to real life. The school fees at Seven Oaks are a fraction of other private schools. When your children are adults, you will look back at it being a small investment into something that was a huge part in making them grow their individual character, they see that others and themselves can accept their strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly know how to nurture their own well being.”
