Lunch with the girls

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL -

IT was all about the ladies at Alexan­dra Pri­mary School last week, when the school held a ‘‘Ladies’ Lunch’’ event for its Year 7 girls and their mums. Prin­ci­pal Adele Gott said the event was to cel­e­brate the girls who had been part of the school’s trial of sin­gle sex classes this year. This term the girls fo­cused on en­gag­ing with the com­mu­nity, and last week’s lunch was part of that, she said.

The girls in­vited their mums along, and other prom­i­nent women in the com­mu­nity were also in­vited to at­tend. The girls lis­tened to pro­fes­sional speaker Amy Scott talk about the ‘‘Get Dot­ted’’ con­cept and ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion, as well as shar­ing lunch with their mums. The Mir­ror’s EMMA DAWE was also in­vited along.
