HACK YOUR STRESS

It has been such a joy to deliver the Skyline Hatch EQ service STRESS HACK to students across Victoria as they prepare for tests and exams. For some, stress can debilitate when working under pressure and can cause us to perform poorly, feel terrible, and eventually lead to serious health problems.

STRESS HACK provides science-backed strategies for regulating stress to use in the moment so that it doesn’t escalate to panic in important situations throughout life—including interviews, auditions and public speaking. Our feedback shows that students’ confidence raises an average of 60% after attending this 90-minute session.  Click here to register now!

DONOR APPRECIATION

Caulfield Grammar School

Caulfield Grammar School, Caulfield Campus

Skyline is immensely grateful to Caulfield Grammar School for partnering with us over several years, generously collaborating and enabling us to support more students through our Program.

This month, Caulfield Grammar School, Caulfield Campus, held its Mother’s Day Gala Event in the Plaza Ballroom at the Regent Theatre in Melbourne’s CBD. The Parents and Friends Committee led by Melanie Sheppard, selected Skyline as it’s chosen charity to raise funds with pre-sales of raffles tickets.

An amazing $20,000 has been donated to Skyline which was raised through pre-sales of raffle tickets including one extraordinarily generous parent matching funds. What an incredible outcome! Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Melanie for her passion and desire to support Skyline and to our inspirational Allison Gibson. On behalf of our Students – thank you.
