“We have had an excellent working relationship with the Raising Resilience Team. The school has learnt from their expertise when working with children and found the team extremely professional. Each workshop is tailor made, ensuring that our girls and their parents benefit whole-heartedly from the experience. Our staff have enjoyed inset and our parents have reported positively on the parental workshops stating that they have learned how best to talk to their daughters.
