The Scarecrow

Body Confidence and Self – Esteem: SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING


 Continuing on our journey of healthy living,

we have now also concentrated on how we can boost

our self-esteem and body confidence.

We recently were fortunate enough to have Diana, an actor, come to our school.

All the 5/6 children attended a session with her.
