Saturday Club

The Saturday Club

The Saturday Club encourages young people to develop their talents and individual character, to make and strengthen genuine friendships and live life to the full.

Run by parents and volunteers, the activities in the club include trips out, sports, crafts, drama, dance and music, as well as weekly talks on virtues and well-being. A culinary arts programme also runs throughout the year, focusing on home-making skills, healthy eating and event planning. Termly adventure weekends away are a highlight.

Each girl has the opportunity to have personalised mentoring sessions. Parents and mentors work closely together to help each girl develop and maintain a strong sense of worth, dignity and direction in her individual circumstances.

This is what the girls have to say…

Make a Difference (MAD) Project

The Make a Difference (MAD) Project is a study and well-being programme, built in response to the need to provide training in mental health awareness and resilience, in a safe environment, alongside helping the young learners grow academically and develop their interpersonal skills. Furthermore, MAD aims to not only help the learners to grow and flourish as individuals but also empowers them to positively their milieu and ultimately the society at large.

The methodology implemented is interactive and participatory. The young people who are part of MAD participate in debates, workshops, study sessions and volunteering activities to foster social awareness and leadership skills. They also have one-to-one mentoring sessions which allow them to talk about their challenges, be listened to, receive support and encouragement, and as a consequence develop a sense of self-worth and grow in confidence. The participants are also encouraged to take part in different forms of volunteering, ranging from helping at soup kitchens and visiting elderly people to running activities with disadvantaged children and feeding the homeless in the street
