Workshop with Storasystrarna

By Linda Kruusmägi

On Monday 19th of August, as part of our Orientation programme for first years we had the pleasure of welcoming ‘Storasystrarna’ a non profit organisation. It is a very young organisation, launched in March 2019 with a focus on increasing young people’s self esteem, encouraging them in understanding their own value and to have the courage to stand up for themselves and others. 

The workshops were led by Malin and Linda, co-founders of Storasystrarna. We will use the feedback from these sessions to further develop our Orientation days and positive engagement during the school year.

There have been thousands of lessons, numerous events and activities both inter school and outer school that have taken place – too many to list here.
