January Camp Courage Wrap-Up

Life is better when it’s spent around the campfire, and our January Camp Courage only proved this to be true. For 40 girls, the adventure began with the first step onto the bus, a mix of nerves and excitement eventually spilling out onto the stunning campgrounds at Ivory’s Rock.

Girl Now: Final Edition

Throughout the last 11 posts in this blog series, I have reminded everyone to live in the present and enjoy every moment. However, this month, I am going to say that every so often it isn’t such a bad thing to look back and acknowledge the past for it only makes us more grateful for things we have in the present. This post is going to look back at the year that was 2019.

Girl Now: Live From New York

This month I am posting live from New York City. Crazy, I know. I recently graduated high school and this is my version of ‘schoolies’. However, before graduating, I went through one of the craziest, happiest, saddest and most unbelievable couple of weeks ever. Throughout the week I had a teacher tell me that although it is sad that I should live every moment and make the most of the time I had. Pretty much, they told me that I had to live in the present.

Girl Now: World Teachers Day

October 5. A day that for many, is just another cross on the calendar. However, as students (on holidays, or not), this day is more than just any other day. October 5 is internationally recognised as World Teachers Day, a day in which we recognise and celebrate the impact that teachers make on our lives.

Girl Now: Feeling The Heat

Basically, this month at school feels like deciding the rest of your life no matter what grade you’re in.

Girl Now: National Science Week

This month, Holly looks at National Science Week and reminds us all of the incredible things that science brings to our daily lives. National Science Week is a time to celebrate people who work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) fields and this month’s Girl.Now blog is a great example of doing exactly that.

Senior Camp Courage Wrap-Up

Senior Camp Courage saw 32 girls coming to us from near and far—with one girl even flying in to us Cairns—and it was with a mix of nerves and excitement that they all piled into the bus that would take them to the stunning campgrounds at Ivory’s Rock. 

Junior Camp Courage Wrap-Up

Held in the stunning natural surrounds of Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens auditorium in the heart of Brisbane. Camp Courage’s first ever 21 participants were in for a real treat, with beautiful sunny weather across the three days and a heap of activities designed to build their confidence and courage.

Girl Now: Malala Day

Too often we find ourselves complaining about the pressures and stresses of school, but as Malala Day is tomorrow, it is the perfect time to remind ourselves of the power that education has on our daily lives.

Girl Now: Keep Your Friends Close

At the time of deciding what I wanted to write this month’s blog about, I had just had an argument (of sorts) with a friend (this was a couple months ago, June Girl Now has been in the works for a while!). Now, neither of us went about the situation in the right way and I know that I was worried about something else on that day but I learnt a very good lesson from it: keep your friends close.
