Focus workshops for grade 10-12 students (Posted: 20/09/2019)




Juggling studying, extra curriculars, friendships, social media and information overload while planning for an uncertain future in a rapidly changing world: it's no wonder young girls are reporting higher levels of stress than ever before.


After working with 1600+ teenage girls over the past 2 years, GIrl Shaped Flames Founder Tanya Meessmann has created GSF.Academy and its half-day FOCUS Workshop, designed to equip your daughter with practical tools and strategies she needs to manage overwhelm, navigate stress, and use pressure to her advantage.



This comprehensive interactive workshop equips teen girls in Grades 10-12 who are feeling challenged by overwhelm, stress and pressure with immediately applicable tools and strategies that will help them manage their productivity and mental wellbeing throughout their life. Each approach is practiced in-class to demonstrate how they align with their own personal situations.



// A pragmatic ‘situation analysis’ of what’s causing stress & pressure
// ‘Cognitive Distortions’ – learning about unhelpful thinking patterns
// Identifying personal values & objectives to encourage focus
// Letting go, and the importance of sleep and spontaneity



// Timeblocking - ‘where is all of my time going?’
// To-do listing & Prioritisation
// Motivational Factors & OOS (Optimal Operational State)
// The ‘10 minute kicker’ trick
// Quick Wins
// Goal Setting

Each participant will also take home a templates workbook to continue applying the strategies learnt throughout the day to their every-day organisation and workload, along with an exclusive Girl Shaped Flame pin.

Please read the Careers newsletters!

Please take the time to read through the Fortnightly Options newsletter to keep you informed. This newsletter is always found in a link on the right hand side of VOCA, but now, it can also be accessed via the secure student section of this website.

This is a valuable resource that provides information on a wide range of topics such as Tertiary and VET options, upcoming competitions, ADFA information, upcoming open days, lectures, scholarhips, links to interesting articles, alternative post schooling pathways, etc.
