Welcome to the Girls' Centre for Excellence

Providing a safe girls only environment where they can be inspired to grow up strong, smart and bold

"I can be changed by what happens to me but I refuse to be reduced by it."

Maya Angelou

We have a crisis that we need to recognise

All too often girls' needs are ignored or the last to be considered...

It's never been a harder time to be a teenage girl and a significant percentage of our girls are hitting puberty with a full on identity crisis.  There are so many issues that stand in the way for so many girls.

The celebrity culture, premature sexualisation, hyper-sexualisation, sexual harassment, peer pressure and bullying are all symptoms of the underlying issues in our society that we need to fix.  And until we address them we need to support girls' who have to live through this minefield right here, right now.

We need are more positive, strong, female role models who won't play the gender stereotype game.  

We need program's designed specifically for girls' and young women that will broaden their horizon's and help them reach their full, unlimited, potential.

We need safe, healthy and nourishing girl only spaces away from the white noise which will allow our young women to hear themselves think.

Pro-girl environments...

Where girls can learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face.

We'll be developing peer mentor and a positive role model program.

We'll be delivering a range of activities to encourage healthy and active lifestyles.

We'll be offering encouragement and opportunities to consider career choices that include science and technology.

Walk a mile in a young woman or girls shoes to really find out how hard it can be.

Girls as young as 5 are worrying about their weight.  By the age of ten 80% of girls will be on a diet to change their body shape(2015)

Teenage girls are now more likely to suffer domestic violence/abuse in their own relationships than any other age group.  12.7% of girls aged 16-19 experienced domestic abuse in the last year (2010)
