Event description

Description

A Celebration Day for Girls is a one-day workshop for 10-12 years old girls with their mother or female carer, designed to support girls and mothers at this special threshold in both their lives, and to provide an affirming, grounded and connected celebration of the journey to womanhood.

In the one day workshop girls enjoy lively discussion, fun activities, and hear women's experiences of menarche and growth into womanhood.

Menarche (girls first period) signifies the beginning of a girl’s fertile years and the menstrual cycle is an intrinsic aspect of being a woman for nearly half of her life. For many girls this is a time of embarrassment, anxiety and mixed messages about what it means to be a girl in a maturing female body. However, extensive research has shown that for young girls who experience menarche well prepared, with a positive introduction and emotional support, the result is higher self-esteem, fewer negative cycle related symptoms, favourable overall menstrual perception and easier subsequent births.

By celebrating menarche we give a profound message to girls that this process within her body is
important and valuable, and so is she, as she learns to inhabit and navigate her changing status through her
teenage years.

This event includes two sessions;
- A two hour evening session with the mothers/female carer of the girls attending (Thursday February 14th 7-9pm)
- A one day workshop. (Sunday February 17th, 10am-4pm)
Attended by the girls from 10-1pm and joined by their mother/female carer from 1-4pm

Price for mother daughter pair for both session - $165 Full (plus booking fee) $125 Concession card holders (plus booking fee)
