Description

In October we are offering a new workshop called REACH FOR THE STARS and it's jam-packed with lots of fun new Girl Power activities! This means that girls who have previously attended a Girl Power Essentials workshop can come along to another awesome day, without repeating activities they have done before. It’s also a great workshop for those who have never attended a workshop before!

In REACH FOR THE STARS we will focus on these key areas…

  • Ways to develop healthy self-esteem to help deal with sticky friendship situations

  • Fostering friendships with those who respect us and treat us well

  • Techniques to be be assertive

  • Building bully-proofing skills

  • Ways to dream big

  • Following your heart

  • Embracing challenges

The girls will explore these topics by way of movement, music, worksheets, vibrant discussion, active games with props, role play and art/craft. Each Girl will receive a 'Reach For The Stars' themed Girl Power pack and the workshop ends with a presentation for parents. Suitable for girls aged 7-12 yrs (please note that girls need to bring a packed lunch and snack).

All instructors are experienced teachers with First Aid training and police clearance.

In June 2019, Girl Power Workshops won a national 'What's On 4 Kids' award ('Best New Kids' Activity').

What do parents, teachers and girls have to say about our workshops?

“At Girl Power, I learnt that I can do anything” Jiorgina (8)

"When my daughter came home after your session, she was so proud of her Girl Power pack, what she had written and what others had affirmed. I saw after a very long year of tears and temper a glimmer of self-esteem and confidence I have not seen in such a long time. Thank you!!!!” Victoria (parent of school workshop participant)

“I think Girl Power is good because some people think they have to change but I don’t need to change anything about me” Ava (8)"I was so impressed with how the workshop ran. The activities were all great fun with a positive and empowering message underlying each of them. The girls finished the day with tools to help them think more positively about themselves and how they handle the inevitable difficulties they face in social situations. Fabulous. I highly recommend Girl Power workshops!" Natushka, mother of Josie (9)

"My daughter and her friend had such a wonderful time today Joni. They were busy talking about their favourite parts (all of it) and it's been wonderful to see them put into practice some of the things they learnt such as their gratitude box. Wish there had been workshops like this for me when I was young. Thanks for this" Jess, mother of Matilda (11)

"A fabulous workshop for young ladies to encourage positive mind set, supportive behaviours and self value” Debbie, Primary School Teacher

“Lily loved it! She was excited to share what she learned with us. Also, the "smiley" vs "frownie" technique has already been applied at home. Thanks!” Anne-Marie, mother of Lily (7)

"Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop. Lola had a wonderful time. She thoroughly enjoyed the workshop!" Angie, mother of Lola (7)

"Maddy had an amazing time this afternoon at the Girl Power workshop. I highly recommend these workshops aimed at building strong self esteem and confidence in young girls." Amanda, mother of Maddy (8)

“At Girl Power, I learnt not to wish I had someone else’s body” Bethany (11)
