GIRLS SELF DEFENCE

Once again we are offering self defence lessons to our Year 8 girls.  This course is run by the Women’s Self Defence Network-Wahine Toa.  The girls will learn how to deal with acquaintance and stranger attacks including being followed, obscene phone calls, and safety issues relating to text and the internet.  These skills will be reinforced through discussion and the development of verbal and physical skills to help the girls keep themselves and others (e.g. friends/siblings) safe.  The course will emphasise how she “thinks” her way out of a threatening situation, and how important it is to tell a safe adult if something happens.

The self defence course is free of charge and will take place at school in the first week of term two.
