Edwina 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!
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.
Their feedback comments are below, and pictures of the students receiving their certificates coming soon. Stand by for some video testimonials that teacher Edwina Ricci took! (I’m eager to see them myself!)
