Words from
the Mentors.

Amy, Balga Primary School

"At first I was reluctant to ‘take on’ mentoring with 12 Buckets as I questioned what great skill or life achievement I could offer as someone with the official title of “Mentor”. However, after meeting my allocated student and getting to know her a little, I swiftly realised my question was unfounded as I had exactly what was needed; my time and my attention. She and I have been a partnership for two years now and I can say it’s been nothing short of a joy and a privilege. Being in her life has allowed us each to shine a little both in what we offer the other and in what we receive back.”
