I am pleased to share with you that later this term our Years 3 to 6 students will attend a special screening in Memorial Hall of Embrace Kids, an uplifting film by Australian of the Year Taryn Brumfitt. Embrace Kids brings together a vibrant collection of stories from young people and famous friends alike, who share their experiences about body image, bullying, gender identity, advocacy, representation and more.
The film aims to improve the body image of young people across Australia and the world. Aimed at an audience of 9 to 14 year olds, but equally engaging for adolescents, teachers, and parents, this film inspires, educates, and advocates for a world where we are not held back by the thoughts we have about the way we look. Instead, young people are encouraged to figure out what makes them unique and special and use that to spark change. Our Years 3 to 6 students will watch the film on the afternoon of Friday 31 March, with all parents and Senior School students invited to attend a screening that evening from 7pm. Further details will be shared with our community next week, but please save the date for this special event.
