The HERO STARTS WITH HER workshop combines elements of drama therapy & performance with interactive activities. The programme creates a relaxed, conversational environment which allows students to feel comfortable to communicate with each other in an alternative way. Girls are given the opportunity to develop new constructive ways of resolving problems and to fully realise the impact of their own actions both good and bad. HERO STARTS WITH HER's energetic yet sensitive approach enables girls to connect with a better understanding of each other.
Thanks to the Parent's Association for financing the workshops received by all 2nd and 3rd years.
