EVERY Wednesday afternoon from 4.30-5.30pm a group of girls meet at the Wagin Community Resource Centre (CRC) to work on some valuable life skills.
The Grooming with Groove and Grace Course was the idea of CRC assistant co-ordinator Londa Finlayson to empower teenage girls, to believe in themselves and focus on something worthwhile.
“I felt that there was not enough focus in our schools on building good self-esteem and thinking about their futures, so I started this course as an extra-curricular activity,” Mrs Finlayson said.
The course runs for 20 weeks and is currently about a quarter of the way through.
Last Wednesday the girls were working on their vision boards, which involved cutting out and pasting positive images of the sorts of things they hope to achieve in their lives.
Wagin is fortunate to have a few people qualified in the areas of nutrition, fitness and beauty therapy.
The girls are all looking forward to listening to their guest speakers in the coming weeks and learning as much as possible from them, in order to continue putting into practice the positive messages they are taking home from this valuable course.
