Bishop Challoner Girls' School - #girlswithgoals campaign

Bishop Challoner Girls' School's #girlswithgoals campaign provides the opportunity for all girls to realise their potential by recognising their unique gifts and talents through a combination of mentoring and extra-curricular activities.

The key aims of #girlswithgoals are:

  • Adopt a healthy academic and body self-esteem
  • Have a vision for the future
  • Develop a positive mindset towards their academic studies and life in general.

The school has hosted a number of successful events promoting the campaign amongst pupils, staff and parents, including an annual conference, Mother and Daughter Christmas Afternoon Tea, after-school Mother and Daughter Cooking Club, a film-making club and the premiere of a short film in January 2017, entitled 'The Power of Yet'.

This short film, which was researched, directed and edited by girls in Years 7-11, contains interviews from women in high profile industry roles, insight from some of the school's female members of staff and discussion from girls on overcoming negative ideas surrounding self-esteem and body image. Filmed with expert help from Sparks-Ignite Media Company and funding from the Big Lottery Fund, The Power of Yet explores how women of all ages can challenge self-imposed and other limitations in the pursuit of their dreams.
