Transition into High School
Younger girls are struggling at an unprecedented rate and prevention is better than cure. Assisting girls to honor themselves, their bodies and each other is central to raising healthy self esteem and bringing cohesion and connectedness to a year group.
This group of workshops have been developed specifically for years 6 and 7.

Learning to establish boundaries as well as dealing with conflict and bullying will assist them with their friendships now and into their future. Topics include: Mean girls, social media, gossip, resilience, forgiveness, healing your heart, un/healthy relationships, role-plays (bully, assistant bully, bystander, target, defender) and the power these roles haveto impact on each other.
