The challenges and issues faced by our daughters as they grow up in the 21st century are vastly different from those that we encountered when we were at school. Growing up isn't always easy and childhood and adolescence are made complex by the many influences that abound in an increasingly complex social and digital world.
At Wilderness we are constantly striving to ensure that we remain aware of and alert to the pressures and social norms that our girls face at all stages of their development. We share with our parents the responsibility to adapt to and respond to the many challenges our girls face and to give them the strategies and knowledge to make the best decision for safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
The Raising Amazing Girls program, supported by the Parents & Friends was designed to provide opportunities for our staff and our girls to hear from and work with some of the best speakers from around Australia who share their expertise to support our endeavours to build resilience and wellbeing in all our girls.
A successful education can only be achieved in partnership between home and school. In order for us to share and support each other on the journey, it is of inestimable benefit if parents also participate in this program. This ensures that our parents are hearing the same information as their daughter, enabling parents to have deep and worthwhile conversations with their daughters to help them to face the challenges of growing up successfully by making good choices that are well informed.
