Create the Great is a positive, interactive, reflective initiative and very worthwhile.

"Create the Great has enabled our students to develop a creative independent approach to life. The time spent with Mark and the team has been a highlight of our TY year. Through mediums the students can relate to such as rap and performing arts, they have flourished in finding a sense of self. The opportunity to express themselves and listen to others has helped develop their bond as a group. Create the Great is a positive, interactive, reflective initiative and very worthwhile.
