Connie Brunton, from Lisburn’s ‘Glitter Sparkle You Holistic’, delivered three particularly enjoyable and informative sessions on holistic facial reflexology, positive affirmations and a self-soothing technique known as ‘havening’ to Year 13 students from Ashfield Girls’ High School.

This was part of the pupils’ Induction Week whereby the A Level students started their new term in an original and innovative new way – with no classes. 

Instead they attended motivational workshops delivered by Action Mental Health, Career Ready and Pathways Activity Adventures, New Driver NI as well as in-house inspirational sessions delivered by teachers on first aid, digital footprints, revision skills and time management.

Head of Sixth Year, Paula Doak, commented: “Hopefully this unconventional start to a new term will provide the pupils with a range of knowledge as well as a wealth of practical strategies which will empower them as they embark on their A Level journey.”
