Building positive relationships between female students
MPower Girls explores the relationships girls have with each other and the hidden world of girls’ aggression. This program deals with issues of bullying, cliques and how girls relate to one another.
How MPower Girls works
MPower Girls encourages students to talk about what it means to be a girl, what it means to be a good friend, what issues can arise between individuals and groups and how this affects them. Girls work together to discuss and resolve issues within their groups, through visual references, imaginative tools and role play. This encourages deeper discussions and provides a greater understanding of the learning outcomes.
The purpose of the program is to:
- Better understand different relationships between female students and practise new ways of relating to one another.
- Develop confidence in the students so they are able to express feelings openly and honestly .
- Explore feelings in a personal and social context.
- Develop and practise different forms of communication.
