Free To Be Program

Macgregor Primary school is proud to run our "Free to be" program that has been developed by Dove Body Think (through the Butterfly Foundation). It addresses issues such as body image, peer pressure and the media's role, influence and impact on our society. The workshops are targeted to help promote self- awareness in our young girls to develop a sound, positive opinion of themselves.

The students are assembled in small groups, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where they establish connections with other students (sometimes outside their regular circle of friends). Within this casual environment they are able to enjoy the right to be themselves and also accept & celebrate their differences. We incorporate fun activities to facilitate bonding and we enjoy an end of program party with a movie and goodies to share.
