#EMPOWHER Wellbeing Program
St Peter's Girls' School is proud to unveil our new wellbeing program: #EMPOWHER
Led by Deputy Principal and Head of Senior School Kate Mortimer, the curriculum for Years 7 – 12 flows into Home Group sessions twice a week. It was developed specifically for the needs of our girls following comprehensive surveys of students and parents last year, and is shaped by national and international research.
The content tackles a variety of challenges facing young women including stress, mental health, self-esteem, sleep and the growing impact of social media. Our girls are provided with a range of strategies to build confidence and resilience. As the title suggests, it’s all about empowering our girls to be positive and happy individuals.
Topics and tools are also being communicated to our parent community, as successful wellbeing programs are ones where the school and parents work very much in partnership. Junior School content is currently being developed for formal delivery in Term 1 next year.
The creation of this tailor-made program is a key plank of the School’s Strategic Plan which is cementing our reputation as a national leader in girls’ education and wellbeing.
In another boost for the School, #EMPOWHER was launched by inspirational cycling champion Anna Meares in February 2018. Her story of resilience, determination and courage resonated deeply with the girls, providing them with the perfect platform to begin their empowering journeys.
