This Girl CAN


The end of the school year generally ends on our ‘This Girl Can Festival’  and what an event it is!

We brought together five professionals in their field to deliver engaging, fun and inspiring sessions to some fantastic Year 7-9 pupils from City Academy Norwich, Notre Dame High, Parkside School and The Clare School. 60 Girls, stepped out of their comfort zone and embraced the new activities.

Our activities were:

  • Nutrition – Chelsea spoke to the girls on – what to put on their plate, changing their habits, making them re think how and what they eat and what effects certain times of the month have on their bodies and how to fuel this.
  • Krav Maga – Aimee from Krav Maga – taught the girls self defence, whilst engaging them in fun activities to work on strength and owning their own space and bodies.
  • Ian from Skate Norfolk – Brought all the skates for the pupils (and Staff) to either learn to skate, practise their skating or learn new skills from their professional skaters who were on board to share their knowledge
  • Jemima and Abigail from Eaton Vale Activity Centre – Where the children were introduced to a pioneering session whilst they made a frame for their catapults. 
  •  Lucia from Glow and Dance – The students embraced a high energy dance workout in the dark whilst creating light with glow sticks.

All sessions, brought something a little different for the girls to try and we hope that they will take something away from their experience and even possibly now try some of the activities outside of school.

Capturing student voice is always important to us and help shape our events. Here are a few things the children had to say…..

Amber – ” The dance was so much fun because the teacher had so much energy. 

Louisa – ” I finally learnt how to stop when skating”
