Greenfield Students celebrate inner beauty

On Monday 31st March 2014 girls from Greenfield Community College joined guests and staff from the school to celebrate the work of the “Through the Looking Glass” project.

The project, which has been funded by GAMP AAP and developed by Greenfield Arts, has been encouraging positive self-esteem in girls. The girls have worked with trained Youth Worker Laura Agar Wilson of since January 2014 through activities and sessions designed to increase confidence and inform them about healthy lifestyles.

The Tea Party, held at Hardwick Hall Hotel, included a menu of healthy treats designed in consultation with the girls, party favours put together by the group, and activity supported by artist Theresa Easton, who has spent time with the girls making “Feel Good Journals.”

Katy Milne, Director of Arts and Creativity at Greenfield said: “It’s been an opportunity for the girls to realise their own confidence to feel good and believe that anything is possible. The activities have included discussions about healthy eating, body image, self-confidence and positive thinking. It’s clear that the girls have gained a lot and you can visibly see the difference. Thanks to Laura Agar Wilson for facilitating this.”

The Tea Party follows a series of successful sessions for the girls, including a “Fabulous Me” day alongside their peers to spread the positive effects of the project to other young people.
