There is still time to register for a Fresh Faced Friday event pack. Fresh Faced Friday (www.freshfacedfriday.com.au) is our annual body image and self esteem campaign being held on 7th September 2018.
The event pack which features; posters, worksheets, colouring in, activity ideas, cupcake flags, stickers and more is designed to help schools and community groups create an event to inform and generate discussion on body image and self esteem, topics which affect many young people and their friends. “The event pack is full of ideas for the day” said Lynsey McLeod, Project Coordinator “From body image splat walls to music led events, however each year we are amazed at the new ideas schools come up with. With many schools involving students in the creation of events and activity ideas, their passion to help their friends to be who they want to be judgment free really shines through.”
Can’t join us on the 7th Sept as it doesn’t fit with your school calendar? That is not a problem, as we invite and welcome you to hold an event or use the resources any time of the year, as every day is a great day to discuss body image and self esteem! Just recently, year 8 and 9 students from Dominic College, Tasmania, utilised the event pack resources to discuss body image as part of Mental Health Week.
College Captain, Maggie Baker and College Vice Captain, Ashley Cano felt very strongly about improving how the students felt about their body image. Using resources from FFF, Maggie led all Year 8’s through a single sex body image workshop to empower the students to know their true value.
Great work Maggie and all the students!
