Mother & Daughter Workshop
The things they said really made me realise that everyone faces their challenges and hardships but no matter what, you should always stay true to yourself and do what makes you happy. It was great that we were able to interact and get involved in activities. I am so thankful that I got to be involved in this workshop because it opened my eyes about many important and relevant topics!
We had The Big Sister Experience out to run our Year 6-7 Transition Program. It was a fantastic workshop for our students and they were thoroughly engaged throughout the day. It catered for both boys and girls and even our challenging students enjoyed the day.
They were organised, fun and used their personal experiences to provide the students with real examples and strategies to help students feel more confident about making the transition to secondary school.
Couldn’t recommend the membership or the girl’s events enough. They are amazing! Invest in yourself – we are all worth it.
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!
Bianca and Kritz from Big Sister Experience have presented an excellent and engaging program for our young women at the Year 9 level.
The different sessions covering self-worth, friendship, trust, relationships and mental health issues, gave students valuable opportunities to build their confidence and share their experiences within a group setting.
In sharing their own stories and experiences, Bianca and Kritz were successful in engaging the year 9 girls and helping them deepen their understanding of self-worth, navigating relationships and setting boundaries.
Overall, Bianca and Kritz have organised a very successful day and I highly recommend The Big Sister Experience.
Thank you so much Kritz and Bianca for your excellent presentation and empowering our young women to reach their goals.
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!
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.
