Northampton DHS Shines
“At Northampton DHS, we want our girls to be proud of themselves and who they are, to have confidence and ambition to succeed. We want them to aspire to a life full of potential and possibility. By introducing the SHINE program to our secondary girls at NDHS, we are supporting our students to believe in themselves and to help them achieve whatever they set their minds to. SHINE provides a unique opportunity for girls to develop strength of character and resilience, skills that are much needed within our fast-paced and complex world. We are so grateful for our girls to be given the opportunity to participate in SHINE. They all love it and we can already see the benefits it offers them in the way that they positively interact with each other and their community.”
