Confident Speaking & Journaling for Girls

2 consecutive mornings, available in both weeks of holidays via Zoom.

Your daughters are tomorrow’s leaders!

Developing your daughter’s ability to speak with confidence does not come from teaching a whole lot of new information or techniques but leading them to explore what is already in their souls and empowering them with skills to share powerfully. It’s about gently liberating the leader within.

After a sell-out program last holidays, they are now offering this powerful program across both weeks of the holidays.

Take advantage of the special NBM’s 20% discount code: CONFIDENTGIRLS20.

Creative Writing

Improve your child’s reading and writing these school holidays.

This course will first of all encourage the shy child to put pen to paper. It will follow a structured outline covering how to generate ideas, how to develop ideas, how to express ideas in creative ways, and how to write them in a composition.

For the confident writer, the course will channel his or her abilities into more fluent and creative written expression. All children will learn the fundamentals of what makes a good story while attending to grammar, syntax, and tense.

Setting, theme, characterization, plot and metaphor will be built into story construction. The course is practical and each child must bring an exercise book and pencils and pens.

Maximum 4 students per class (2 hours per day Monday to Friday).

Dates: 13th July – 17th July

Spaces are limited, so please call for more information.
