DOVE SELF-ESTEEM WORKSHOPS

Posted on

On Tuesday 21st April, all Form II pupils and a number of Form III pupils attended Dove Self-Esteem workshops in school.

Representatives from the Dove Self-Esteem initiative highlighted to pupils some of the issues surrounding the portrayal of beauty in the media, including the use of Photoshop to create unrealistic images.  Pupils were given the opportunity to think about and discuss the impact which this has on them, and also to reflect on how they portray themselves on social media.

Thanks to Mr Hughes, Miss Ardis, Mr Stretton and Mrs Morris for organising and running the event.
