What our Sisters say
What real girls and their teachers think about The Big Sister Experience
Abbey ? Year 9 Student
I really liked how they explained everything because a lot of people won’t come out and say yes it’s hard, most people just come out and say love yourself, do this, do that but they won’t actually explain how. It’s really just nice that Bianca and Kritz explained all the different ways to love yourself and expressed what they went through so we could relate to them.
Also the way they opened up and they didn’t worry about not telling the full story because it might be confronting. It’s good to be confronting, it’s good to make people uncomfortable because the real world is confronting and it’s uncomfortable and there’s so many situations and it’s just good to give us that experience that you are not alone, you are here and they told us that and really made us believe it!
Daniela ? Year 7 Student
It was a great workshop and I think a much needed one for girls our age. So often we get caught up in life that we forget to take care of ourselves, and the Big Sister Experience was a great way to take some time to remind ourselves just how much we are worth and how it is very important to surround ourselves with people who let us be ourselves.
I would definitely recommend The Big Sister Experience to other girls my age because it is so important to understand more about yourself, and how to manage your social circles, as well as how important it is for girls to support girls. These are definitely much needed topics to raise with girls in high school.
Matt ?Year 8 Coordinator
As the Year 8 coordinator I believe it should be part of the curriculum from day dot… these really simple messages get overlooked. Are parents meant to be teaching this, are teachers meant to be teaching this, where are they learning these types of things? There is a great need for this kind of ethical and moral guidance.
The messages really resonated, they were relevant, and the girls actually enjoyed themselves, they were really engaged!
Hannah ?Year 6 Coordinator
As a year 6 coordinator I was so excited to come across The Big Sister Experience as it is so needed in schools state wide. After meeting with Kritz and Bianca, their professional and enthusiastic nature made me feel confident they were the perfect teachers to deliver such a program. The Big Sister program was such a highly beneficial workshop for our students and really got them involved while they were learning. Having been a teacher for 10 years, and seeing the gap in general life skills within the curriculum, I can say this program is vital for all students wellbeing, safety and transition to high school. We can’t wait to have the Big Sisters back to deliver their program to the year 6 cohort each year!

The Big sisters allow younger girls like myself to feel comfortable in asking questions & seeking advice.
For me it was asking questions I wouldn’t particularly feel comfortable asking my mum, and they provided me with the perfect advice on how to approach the situation.
These girls are so friendly, super approachable and just purely amazing!
