So now I am busking and I’m happy because I’m doing what I love, so thank you guys for that.

“You look forward to it, you want to come to school just to do ONE VISION and then you think school isn’t really that bad. After you do it you have more of an attitude that you want to learn. I’m so close to all the people I was in ONE VISION with. I have a crew, I can always rely on them.”
STUDENT (female) – MULLUMBIMBY HIGH SCHOOL

“When you come to ONE VISION PRODUCTIONS they teach you what notes to sing, give you background people to help you. You’ll actually make a song. It’s Life-Changing! Oh man it’s scary to imagine what if I wasn’t with ONE VISION I’d still be at home trying to put chords together and make beats on an iPad app or something.”

Knowing that [how you feel] is up to you completely … it’s not how others’ feel about you. Don’t let other people hold you back. You just feel the emotions you wanna feel and do your thing.”
STUDENT (male) – MURWILLUMBAH HIGH SCHOOL

STAFF TESTIMONIALS

“110% encourage schools to be involved and onboard with ONE VISION PRODUCTIONS. I’ve sat back and been fortunate enough to watch these kids grow and develop into the strong leaders that our community is going to need.”
TEACHER – KINGSCLIFF HIGH SCHOOL

“I wasn’t know what to expect with the program but I was absolutely gobsmacked at how engaged the kids became with it. It’s really cool. This stuff is contemporary, it’s the sort of stuff kids want to do, something fresh that is meaningful. They can get it on YouTube, they can show people, they get a sense of pride out of it. Igniting that passion, getting that sense of pride, that self-worth. It builds confidence in kids.”
TEACHER – MULLUMBIMBY HIGH SCHOOL

“Kids were running in and keeping a close eye on that number [youtube views] and watching it rise, even staff we doing the same. It was just absolutely amazing so, as a whole school focus we were all so very proud of them.”
TEACHER – KINGSCLIFF HIGH SCHOOL

“The kids are here every week that the program is running, so that tells you something. I’m a big believer in giving kids access to programs that are meaningful, enjoyable and they get some practical experience out of… so the more of it we do, definitely the better.”
TEACHER – MULLUMBIMBY HIGH SCHOOL

“The platform not only enhances Culture within the school but also helps deal with personal issues the kids might be going through. ONE VISION [create] a trusting safe environment where the kids can actually speak about how they feel, that they’re not the only ones in that position. I think every school would benefit.”
