Can I attend only the workshops and not the classroom session?
The classroom session provides the foundation on which the workshops continue. So a student has to attend the classroom session before any other sessions.

 

Are parents required to attend the classroom session?

The family is a closely interlinked unit and the performance of any one person is impacted by the actions of all. For this reason, parents are strongly requested to attend the session so that they can also understand Thrive concepts and support their wards better.

 

Are parents required to attend the workshops?

For the workshops, parent attendance is not required. But depending on the level of engagement of the parent in the details of the child’s journey, parents are welcome to attend alongside their children.

 

What is the purpose of the mentoring session?

The mentoring session is designed to provide additional guidance for the student to work on plans to address their gaps. If the student requires further guidance and help on an ongong basis, we can provide that as an option (please see the Register page of this website).

 

What is the location of these sessions?

Currently, the Classroom sessions are conducted in person. The location of the sessions is announced on the Register page, but the currently planned sessions are in hotel conference centers. The Workshop sessions are run online (on Zoom or Google Meet) – these are hands-on sessions where students make their own plans on their laptops live during the session.

How long are these sessions?

The Classroom session is an all-day session, running to a planned 6 hours of instruction, with added time for breaks. The Workshop session is planned for 3 hours.

I worry that this is yet another time commitment for my student ....
Indeed you should worry about that. This particular program actually teaches the student to prioritize and organize in such a manner that the load and therefore,"stress" is lifted, not increased. 

My child is not stressed. I see them doing well academically and otherwise. 
If your student is sleeping well, is clearly healthy, physically and mentally, and "thriving" while performing at their own highest potential and pursuing their other passions with zeal, then congratulations. There is no need to attend. However, if the work load will increase in the coming months or if the child is still quite young, then the tools and techniques acquired in advance can help ward off any potential future challenges.

Is food provided at the Classroom session?

Yes, simple food (lunch) and beverages/snacks is provided for the student and parents at the Classroom session, and the cost is included in the program fee.

How do I register and pay for these sessions?

You can register and pay for a session on the Register page of this website.

If you have to cancel a session after payment, if the withdrawal request is received by the Monday preceding the date of the session, you can defer your registration to a future session. Late cancellations cannot be accepted, sorry. Refunds will be processed within 7 days.
