Testimonials from Past Heroes Academy events


“When here today! OMG! Our 6 year old absolutely loved it – he didn’t want to leave! Would highly recommend it to everyone.. Well planned and organised and the people who did it were absolutely fantastic, kind hearted people!
Verity – August 2020


“My 8yo who has anxiety was adamant that he was not going to stay if I didn’t stay with him- but his adult friend was so lovely and he happily went off with her and afterwards asked “how long until the next one?”

The staff were very organised and there was a variety of activities nicely spread out and all safety precautions were in place. Heroes Academy were true to their word and my child said it was the best time he has had so that speaks in volume. Staff were friendly and inviting and showed that they care. I especially loved how my child’s volunteer was with him the entire time and he didn’t leave his side, that was very comforting. Heroes Academy is doing such a great job and a wonderful thing for the Community and we look forward to future events to come. Highly recommended with lots of praise and gratitude for everyone who made this day possible.

“I would just like to say thank you so much for all everyone did to make today so great. For the 35 minutes it took Ben and I to get home he did not once stop talking about how great the day was and when he could do it again. Thank you again for all the effort that is put into the day and know that it is very much appreciated”

“Caylan has ASD and struggles socially and the carer that they paired him up with was perfect for helping him have fun while taking some social risks.”

“Thank you so much for organising Heroes Academy today. I am so impressed with the set up of the whole program. I am so glad David was there today and he enjoyed himself. It was also great to give us some time to sit down and go out for lunch in peace. Much appreciated”
Susan – July 2019


“Wow! I am blown away by the social story provided, that is incredibly thoughtful, and the food options are so nice. We were very touched by the level of commitment by Heroes Academy in making our daughter and ourselves feel comfortable and welcomed. We liked the various activities, having different stations for children to wander around and use at leisure and having sensory equipment to help children feel calmer was so appreciated. I just wanted to say a big thank you for what your Church is doing”

“I was so happy with the whole set up and was really so impressed on all fronts. It was a bit nerve wracking dropping Aiden off to complete strangers, but it was so well organised, and I felt comfortable that he was going to be well looked after. Aiden was made so welcome and I felt confident that he was in good hands. I really applaud your community for making this available to families of special needs children.”
