Building Girls Confidence

c l i m b e v e r y m o u n t a i n (1)

 

We have a very exciting new workshop this year called ‘Making Rainbows’ to promote girl’s confidence. A name chosen to reflect the desire to influence girls to live fabulous, colourful lives!
The goal is to teach young girls to build confidence so that they have the tools to enable them to achieve anything they wish.

 

We developed this workshop with the  evidence by the Department for Education that girls start to fall behind at Key Stage 2 Skills through lack of self-confidence and becoming ‘invisible.’
