Headmaster Seminar Series – Dr Arne Rubinstein

Wednesday, 16 May 2018

Dr Arne Rubinstein with Dr Rob McEwan, Headmaster

Last night we had the pleasure of hosting Dr Arne Rubinstein as part of our Headmaster Seminar Series. Arne is the CEO of the Rites of Passage Institute, he is a nationally and internationally in demand speaker for his practical, entertaining and insightful presentations which are suitable for a broad range of audiences.

His extensive knowledge on adolescent behaviour, parenting, Rites of Passage, corporate leadership and transformation provide a highly entertaining and insightful event that engages and educates any audience. Arne’s 2013 book The Making of Men, has become a best seller and is a practical handbook for parents and teachers of boys. The Making of Men details his model of Boy Psychology versus Healthy Man Psychology and the fundamental differences between them. Young men need to learn how to be the gatekeepers of their own futures as well as their emotions and it’s the role of the whole community to ensure this happens.

The Headmaster Seminar Series are free seminars that are open to the public. Nearly 400 attendees filled the Terence Butler Auditorium last night to hear Arne speak about answers and tools to help a generation of young men and women to be happy and motivated about life. He also provided practical guidance to stop them from going off the rails as well as providing some techniques for parents to maintain healthy communication and to successfully manage the changing relationship with their teenager.

We have received a wonderful response about last night’s seminar and we would like to thank Arne for visiting the School as a speaker and for also being part of implementing a Rites of Passage program for our students.
