This week we were fortunate to welcome Catherine Manning, founder and CEO of Self Esteem Education and Development (SEED) to our College to run a number of workshops for our Year 6- 10 students.

Catherine delivered some very powerful and engaging workshops looking at the media’s influence in people’s lives and how it often presents a narrow, unobtainable beauty ideal for both males and females.

Our students were encouraged to be very mindful of any information that they receive (particularly through the media) and to take a more holistic approach to their health and embrace their own unique beauty and style.

We thank Catherine for her warm and engaging presentations which the students greatly benefited from and enjoyed.

“Catherine’s talk was one that was relevant for students in our day and age. The message that really stuck with us was that we should be ourselves more on the inside and love ourselves more on the outside.” Eliza & Mercedes

“It has been great to have the SEED workshop today. It will hopefully improve everyone’s self-esteem.” Tennyson
