Tasmanian Health Department
Tasmanian Health Department,
I am a registered nurse working for the Health Department in Tasmania and as I work in the schools primarily, these books are an excellent resources for our young kids.
I was sitting in my hairdresser’s today and picked up your book on advice to young people. It’s so informative and easy to read.
Being the mother of 4 children (3 girls and 1 boy). I found the handbook to be a helpful reference during their teenage years. The information was easy to read and had good sound advice. I would encourage anyone with children to have a copy at hand for themselves and the children.
The NT Streetsmart Handbook were a valuable resource to have available. We have used the handbook to startup a program for children in the Katherine region.

We need more extra Streetsmart handbook, this handbook is superb! The year 11 students love the handbooks and we have received positive feedback from the parents as well
We are a company in Alice Springs (NT) that paid to advertise in this book & received a copy through the mail. I am a parent of a 15 year old boy & found it absolutely fantastic & have never seen anything like it. I was showing a couple of my work colleagues & we all said we would love to buy a copy of this. I have given the copy we got to a friend who has a young daughter in hospital with an eating disorder & she apparently hasn’t put it down.

Epping Views Primary
Epping Views Primary,
I am a Primary School teacher who has been battling with limited educational resources in the classroom for many years. I have read your Streetsmart Handbooks and think they are a brilliant educational guide that Secondary Schools are privileged to receive. I have read the handbook and know that it would make my life so much easier if there was Primary School version I could use in the classroom. I have spent endless hours of scanning the internet looking for valuable information but have not found anything as useful as your book . Keep up the good work!!
WA College of Agriculture – Narrogin
WA College of Agriculture - Narrogin,
The Street Smart Handbook is a fabulous idea and initiative. As a teacher and parent I have seen first hand the advantages of having one simple resource containing so much valuable information. Parents, generally, can be overwhelmed at how much their children need to know to be successful in life. Much of this information is not contained in the core learning of students as teachers try to get through the essential learning. An area that is continually skipped over in current education is “life skills”. This product takes a very thorough approach to explaining topics in “kid speak” which are highly relevant and required as young adults bridge the gap from school to future pursuits. Overall I have never seen any product this relevant and this good that is sadly missing from many educational institutions.
The Kooralbyn International School
The Kooralbyn International School,
A very well written publication. The minute I started reading it, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for that I could distribute to our Year 11 and Year 12 students. All appropriate topics for young adults are well written. We will subscribe to this publication annually as long as it is available.

The NSW Streetsmart Handboook is a great resource with handy, useful and relevant information for senior students. It has complemented our student well-being program and the sessions we run in collaboration with U Turn the Wheel and Paul Dillon’s Drugs and Alcohol Talks.

HT wellbeing agreed and we would like to use it as a resource So, the resource is for the 2022 study skills lessons, where we address wellbeing, careers, and study/learning issues.

Ballarat Clarendon College
Ballarat Clarendon College,
“We received these recently and when giving them to some of the graduating year 12 students, I overheard 2 students talking later about it. I quote” this book is unbelievable-stuff for Schoolies, Uni and the holidays!” That probably says it all. You want this resource to be used and referred to. Keep it going you guys. Many thanks
I am writing firstly to say what a fantastic resource the Street-smart Handbook is for young adults, the articles and links are contemporary and relevant. I work within a collaborative group of secondary school nurses in the south west area of Victoria at the DET. Is there a way we could order handbooks for our schools? I know the reach is great, but if there is a subsidised subscription for schools in need? I’m reaching out on behalf of our department to ask the best way about schools having this handbook reach 16–17-year-old students?
