The Shine Project Health & Wellbeing Event 2017

11 Year 8 students attended an evening event at Pizza Express as part of the Shine Project.

    Students went to Pizza Express as a celebratory event to complete the Shine project sessions held in school over the last eight weeks to help with self-esteem and confidence in young teenage girls.

    During the weekly sessions, the students have engaged with an amazing variety of activities including, skincare demonstrations, hair demonstrations health and fitness, mindfulness and creative activities.

    Students were enthusiastic and really enjoyed the sessions.

    The celebratory meal gave the students a chance to show off their newly gained confidence and take part in a way, which promotes their independence, self-esteem, and being able to make choices for themselves.

    The girls were a credit to the school in the way they conducted themselves. We hope that there will be a repeat of the event next year for other students.

    Below are some comments from parents about the shine project.

    “Thank you all so much for allowing and giving our daughter this lovely opportunity to be part of the Shine Project. My daughter lost her sister tragically and is in shock and grieving. This project has and is truly benefitting my daughter. She has enjoyed taking part, giving her some happiness and normality in her life. Thank you all so very much from my heart.”
