Over the next three weeks, students in Years 9 and 10 will participate in the Shine and Strength programs.

SHINE is a unique personal development and group- mentoring tool that uses an inspirational, practical and experiential approach to learning for girls and women. Similarly the STRENGTH program is about equipping adolescent men with the knowledge and skills to discover who they are and the person they want to become.

There are many activities that students will undertake in the 9 lesson program and will culminate in a celebratory lunch on Thursday in Week 4.

Students will also have the opportunity to hear guest speakers during some of the sessions.

Students will also participate in questionnaires to gauge their wellbeing so that activities can be adapted for them.

The sessions will be conducted by Mr Quince and Miss Oates who have had previous experience in presenting these seminars.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact either Mr Quince or Miss Oates at school.
