For some people, what makes them feel loved is to receive a gift. This is a story of mutual love and selflessness from a teacher who gave a Timekeeper watch to her student. Susan McCowan, a St Phillip’s College teacher, runs the $20 Boss Program with her Year 11 students, enabling and equipping students to bring out their entrepreneurial skills. In November 2017, one of her students Chelsea won a Northern Territory award for the best operating business as part of the program. Chelsea’s idea was a wellbeing promotion and advocacy business called an ‘Anti-Vexed Text’. The text-based service provides subscribers with a daily SMS containing positive affirmations or stress-relieving strategies, with a view to reframe one's perception of the day ahead.
Susan decided to give Chelsea one of our Timepieces as a symbol of appreciation.
The timepiece inspires and encourages Chelsea to be present, positive and conscious.
We are honoured by this gesture. At The Timekeeper we celebrate slowing down and remind people to build a foundation by having presence, purpose and authentic connections in their lives.
We appreciate change makers like Chelsea who are conscious and purpose-driven at a young age, and Susan, whose role as a mentor encourages mindfulness in these beautiful minds.
