03 Dec To say everyone was motivated would be an understatement.
Miss Heather is an amazing woman – strong, adventurous, experienced and caring. After the release of ‘Fat Bob and the Blonde’, I read with respect and admiration of her courage and down to earth logic on life with all its highs and hardships.
I was lucky enough to meet Miss Heather through a colleague and to engage her to share her journey with our whole staff. To say everyone was motivated would be an understatement.
Conversations around the water cooler led to us engaging Miss Heather to run weekly workshops with our Senior School girls (Miss Heather’s girls). As we all know those pre-teen years can be a minefield of emotions and social reactions. Miss Heather developed her GEARS program aimed at just such issues and we were hooked.
During these workshops we have seen really strong, open and honest relationships develop, many of our students are speaking up about their own stories, and they are better able to deal with the ‘little’ things and are more confident in believing in themselves and accepting themselves and each other just the way they are.
Thank you to Miss Heather for joining our school community and for enriching the wellbeing of many.
