Self-esteem project

Our Year 8s took part in a self-esteem workshop delivered by Dove. The workshop focused on body image and appearance pressure. They watched a film and had discussions on appreciating oneself as they are, rather than trying to look like other people. The discussions were inspired by some examples from professional and social media. Nashad, Year 8, said that the project helped her to understand the ways media is used manipulatively. She said: Everything we see on media may not be real. The workshop helped us with self-esteem and I thought today that I loved myself.”
