Girls will have the opportunity to move through a series of lessons and discussions starting at the kindergarten level and continuing throughout their years at Heathcote. New students are always welcome in any grade, regardless of whether or not they have participated in past years.
Lessons in the early grades will focus on discovering our own strengths, accepting and valuing differences in others, choosing positive friendship relationships, how to treat friends, and many other topics. As the girls move into the upper grades discussions will include how to handle conflict through communication and confrontation, cliques, and gossip, among others. It is my hope that over the years the girls will master many of these skills and develop more positive female friendships.
