S1 Confidence and Body Image

Staff from The Youth Agency have been working with S1 pupils from Forrester High School to explore issues relating to confidence, self esteem and positive body image and how this can be portrayed by others and in the media.

Each group had very different ideas about what is confidence and how it can be expressed by others and in different ways.  Each group created some excellent posters that highlighted how the media portrays individuals and these generated lots of thought provoking discussion.

Staff and young peoplefelt the sessions were fun and interactive and all the staff are looking forward to working with the S1 pupils in the future.
