Over the past 6 weeks Miss Barnard and Mrs Coates ran a programme called Shine with the Year 8 girls. Shine is a personal development programme that has been created to empower girls irrespective of their cultural, educational, religious or socio-economic background. It is a solutions focused course that uses a practical and inspirational approach to learning. The aim of the course is to help girls to develop their self-esteem, build and establish their confidence, understand their personal value and unlock hidden potential. The course is designed to run in a group setting which makes it a great way to make new friends, to network and build meaningful relationships with other girls. To celebrate the end of the programme, Miss Barnard and Mrs Coates and the Year 8 girls enjoyed a lovely breakfast at Belgique.
