Felstead Education was established in 1988 to deliver high quality, innovative and engaging educational programs for school students.
Since then our broad range of presentations, seminars, DVDs and workshops have been seen by close to 250,000 pupils in over 1000 schools throughout Australia, Europe, Asia and America.
Our philosophy is simple – that having a healthy mind and a healthy body, combined with strong study skills empowers students to achieve at their personal best, whatever that best may be.
We believe that now more than ever this message is a vital one for students to hear as they combat the ever-mounting demands and pressures of modern senior schooling.
