Girls aged 10-14yrs
During this extraordinary time SHE Scotland aimed to keep connection with the girls and young women throughout Edinburgh & Lothian. With financial support from the Women's Fund, SHE delivered Circle Time packs, pop up pods and virtual workshops.
CIRCLE TIME RESOURCE PACK - SHE designed and distributed specialised Circle Time Resource Packs to over 500 girls and young women. Our specially designed transition workshops were well received by girls, schools and parents. Circle Time pack contained over 30 activities which support building confidence, increasing self-esteem, positive relationships, growing resilience and learning coping techniques.
"i really enjoyed doing all of the activities and it made me more positive about going up to a new school" - girl aged 11
Activities are designed to enable girls to become more aware of their emotions, increase positive interactions with others and practice techniques which help them focus.
CIRCLE TIME POP UP PODS - SHE ran 4 pop up workshops in North Edinburgh & Bruntsfield areas. Providing space for girls to connect with each other and take part in fun, creative and physical activities.
"I met a new friend who was going to my school and it was good to meet up with others who were worried about school too" - girl aged 11
CIRCLE TIME VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS - Girls transitioning to high school took part in specially designed workshops to reduce anxiety about their next step. SHE Ambassadors offered support and space to chat through all things high school. We created YOUTUBE videos to compliment our programme and provided resources for participants to do outside of the workshops.
It was so good to have something this summer especially - huge credit to the SHE Team. All the sessions were supportive, fun and grew my daughters confidence. My daughter said after that we all help each other with difficult things. - Parent of S1 girl
