A Celebration Day for Girls is a one-day workshop held in Bondi for girls approximately 9-12 years old with their mother or female carer.
Celebration Day for Girls is a fun creative & interactive day celebrating the special connection between Mother & daughter, menstrual education & offering themes of positive menstruation & transitions into Womanhood.
This carefully crafted workshop was designed to support girls and mothers at this special threshold in both their lives, and to provide an affirming, grounded and connected celebration of the journey to womanhood. At the Celebration Day girls enjoy lively discussion, fun activities, women’s stories and gentle celebration of the magical threshold of puberty and the menstrual cycle.
As the experiences of puberty and menstruation are not only physical, but also emotional, social, cultural, and for many, spiritual, we have a wide variety of conversations during the Celebration Day which weave in and out of the Day’s activities.
-Seasons and cycles of life
-Exploring stories and practices from different times and cultures for a healthy dose of cultural relativism
-Practical ways to manage menstruation at school, at home and elsewhere
-The physiology and biochemistry of the menstrual cycle, hormones, menstrual blood (how much, what is it?)
-Pads and tampons, commercial and reusable cloth and cups
-Puberty, body changes and emotions
-How girls feel about starting to menstruate
-Mother’s menarche stories
-Girls and women supporting each other.
-And more, depending on girls’ questions, concerns and curiosity.
