Dash Finishing School ‘Teen Etiquette, Dining & Deportment’ modules combine to create a Swiss finishing school alternative in Melbourne, designed to give adolescents the social skills necessary to help them mature into confident and self-assured adults. Occasionally, as parents, we see our children being bombarded daily with peer pressure and messages that do not always reflect the values that are important to us. We want our children to develop their own self-identity and to continue to build their confidence and thinking skills. This program is specifically designed to meet the needs of this age group. They are highly interactive and fun, and are in harmony with the growing emphasis on character education and positive self-esteem. We provide a platform for the finest cross-cultural etiquette tutelage.
Let us support you in equipping your teen with the leadership skills he or she needs to not only handle a variety of situations with poise and confidence, but to also be prepared for success in the global economy of the 21st century.
