Bounce & Balance is for YEAR 11 female students.


A challenge to every young woman to take responsibility for her ability to respond to every situation, either by bouncing or balancing.   This 50 minute presentation is packed with practical information to support mental well-being and provide solutions to manage anxiety & the feeling of being over whelmed.


Grit & Pivot is for YEAR 12/13  female students.


This presentation follows the dual journeys of co-founders Marina and Jo as they found their careers through separate pathways.  Their stories speak to redundancy, disappointment, surprise, catastrophe, and determination.  At the end of the 50 min presentation students will understand that they can either GRIT or PIVOT to create their very own success stories.
