Girls on Board

We want to reduce any potential friendship issues by empowering girls with the skills to develop and maintain their own friendships. We encourage girls to settle their own disputes and be happy and confident in their own skin.

St. Catherine’s is a ‘Girls on Board’ School.

‘Girls on Board’ is an approach to help girls between the ages of 8 and 18 navigate the often troubled waters of friendship problems. This approach helps girls, their parents and their teachers to understand the complexities and dynamics of girl friendships. The language, methods and ideas empower girls to solve their own friendship problems and recognises that they are usually the only ones who can. By empowering girls to find their own solutions, parents need worry less, schools can focus more on the curriculum and the girls learn more effectively – because they are happier. ‘Girls on Board’ is helping school communities across the country ensure their girls are happier at school, less distracted by friendship issues and more focused on the important things.
