Staying Healthy, Staying Strong

Our Yirrkala Stars have been working with their Mentors on two important personal development pillars of the Stars Plan this week – Healthy Lifestyles and Wellbeing.

Personal hygiene was the focus for our junior Stars, with a talk about how and when to brush their teeth and why it’s important for their general health. The girls also made their own face scrubs and masks, finishing off their session with a facial.

Our middle school Stars spent time with their Mentors to complete their Stars profiles, which aim to obtain more information about the girls and identify the things they are good at and the things that really interest them, so that Stars’ activities are able to help develop their personal strengths.

The middle school session also involved a discussion about personal hygiene and the importance of keeping the skin clean and healthy, especially in the teenage years. What better way to round off the session than with an indulgent homemade facial?

All the Stars girls involved learnt a lot about looking after their bodies during the session – they loved having the facials and were amazed at how clean and soft their skin felt afterwards.
