A Visionary Teacher - Thank You, Edwina!

Melba EdwinaEdwina Ricci is an extraordinary woman. Not only is she a classroom teacher, Year 9 Co-ordinator and Wellbeing Teacher a Melba College in Croydon, but she has a vision to turn the entire school into a 'School of Wellbeing' by adopting the principles of Martin Seligman's Positive Psychology, AND to turn the entire City of Maroondah into a 'City of Wellbeing', a vision she is driving from her role as the President of the Croydon Chamber of Commerce. Edwina is a powerful member of the local Rotary Club and  her local church and is on the Executive Committee of the Olympic Sports Federation of Oceania AND an international director of United Youth Media (UYM)... Is that enough? In her spare time she is a wife and mother and building a new house with her husband on the outskirts of Melbourne!

What do they say? If you want something done, give it to a busy person!

I'm exceedingly grateful to Edwina for her enthusiasm about The Mastery Club® and the place my books and programs can play inside her vision. Edwina would love to see Melba College as a Mastery Club school, where every student reads the book and does the program. We're on our way!

She is pictured here receiving a thank you gift from Melba College student, Molly, for her role in organising The Mastery Club® program. Thank you, Edwina! 

Melba College Assesses The Mastery Club® Program

Yesterday we completed the program at Melba College with 13 Year 9 students. As they had been intrigued by the previous week’s Guest Speaker, raw vegan builder, John Salton, I brought in a raw vegan cheesecake for them to taste as part of our completion celebrations. They presented me with a beautiful card, flowers, wine and sweets.

Raw Living Builder Impresses the Students!

John SaltonSession #9 of The Mastery Club® 10 Lessons Program features a Guest Speaker, so last week I invited into the session at Melba College the very inspiring John Salton. John is a builder whose raw vegan diet marks him out from other tradies – and also other athletes. A long time cyclist, John decided to take up marathon running just a year ago at the age of 53. He has already run several marathons, including two 50 km and one 100 km marathon! 

John runs on fruit, juices, smoothies and wholefood energy bars and doesn’t participate in any of the lollies/jelly snakes/pasta meals etc. that most athletes get into ‘for energy’, and his results speak for themselves. He runs easily, ‘dancing’ along the track, and recovers quickly and well – and has set a wild goal for 2020, when he plans to run across the breadth of Australia, from east to west, through the desert…

Needless to say, the students were gob-smacked by his achievements and vision, especially the aspiring athletes among them. They were moved by his honest, heartfelt answers to their questions, and fascinated by his description of raw cakes and the other treats he plans to make available at sporting and music festivals when he launches his new business, Rooted Raw, in 2015.

John is one of the generous sponsors of the program who has offered to sponsor again in 2015. Thank you, John!!!
