Dance, art and song unleash the inner talents of students

this year Bishop Challoner Girls’ School launched a campaign to provide the opportunity for girls to realise their potential by recognising their unique gifts and talents through a combination of mentoring and extra-curricular activities.

The key aims of #girlswithgoals are:

* adopt a healthy academic and body self-esteem
* have a vision for the future
* develop a positive mindset towards their academic studies

The theme of the first event, which is now planned to be an annual event each January, was ‘What is your dream?’ explored aspirations through poetry, dance, art and song. There were also keynote speeches in the areas of law, engineering, IT and media from these guest speakers:

Dr Sue Black OBE – Founder, Techmums
Elisha Sempa – Employment and Skills Manager, Balfour Beatty
Jessica Elliot – Founder, J’s Dance Factory and Presenter for The Independent Newspaper
Maameyaa Kwfo-Akoto – Associate, Allen and Overy Law Firm

Head of Bishop Challoner Girls’ School, Chantelle Easmon-Johnson, described the initiative, ‘Our campaign exists to remind girls of how incredibly unique they are and encourages them to identify and celebrate their individual gifts and talents. We insist that all of our girls ‘dream big’ and believe that they have the ability to achieve their dreams, whatever they are. We will be there to encourage, support and cheer them on along the way!’

The Bishop Challoner Catholic Federation of Schools has a long history of children’s education in Tower Hamlets stretching back to 1859. With small class sizes, high standards in academic pursuit, positive behaviour and good citizenship as well as strong links to the best universities and global business, it’s no wonder that this school continues to deliver great academic results and exceptionally talented young people into the community every year.
