We’re over the head excited about the Summer School coming up this August/September.
A lot of planning and organizing have been put in and we’re just waiting to have our girls and train and teach them to be the best of themselves.
As per the flyer, it is a vocational and Leadership Summer school so we’re focused on developing the skill-set of every girl and also training on personal/self development and of course, discussing career paths and options as per Foch woman aims and objectives.
We’ve had a load of questions coming through with regards the summer school so we put together an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), that might be helpful to Participants and their guardians planning to attend.
WHAT IS THE MOTIVATION BEHIND THE SUMMER SCHOOL?
Foch woman is committed to the growth, development and empowerment of young girls and women across the world, this means that whatever it will take to help us equip young girls for their future, we are all for and about.
The summer school is going to be an environment to learn and develop skills, whether new skills or developing from previous knowledge from well-informed and experienced individuals.
As we create and develop, we have sessions where we’ll actually seat and discuss issues close to the heart of young people today and take direction from the bible to know how best to navigate our way around.
WHAT AM I GETTING OUT OF THIS?
We would not organize this if we didn’t see a benefit in it, for any young girl involved in the summer school this year, we hope to give you a platform to know yourself better by exposing you to different skill-sets and teaching and training you in new things.
We’re attaching mentors to girls which also gives you a sort of ‘Big-sister’ to talk to even beyond the Summer school.
Meeting other participants also gives you an opportunity to network and make new friends and in the end, to remind you of all your hard work and dedication, we will present you with a FOCH woman Vocational/Leadership Certificate highlighting all you would have learnt in the week.
WHAT DAYS SPECIFICALLY WOULD I HAVE TO BE AT THE VENUE?
August 25th, 27th, September 1st, 2nd and September 8th is the Variety day where we’ll allow parents and guardians come and see all we’ve been up to. It’ll be more of a social evening to showcase all we learnt through the last 4 days.
It’ll be 10am – 4pm daily and Guardians will need to drop and pick their kids daily.
Every participant will receive an outline of the program for each day after payment has been made.
HOW DO I MAKE PAYMENT FOR THE SUMMER SCHOOL?
We have an Eventbrite link which takes you to a form to fill and allows you make payments there.
Alternatively, you’re able to speak to any of the organizers or call +447440284657
As we have limited spaces, we strongly advice that you register your interest as soon as you decide you want to be a part of it.
WHO ARE THOSE LOOKING AFTER MY GIRLS?
Foch woman prides herself in a network of reliable and committed girls and women who are also walking on the FOCH path and so are equipped to train and raise younger girls.
Guardians will have an opportunity to meet with their daughter’s mentor for the summer school if they want to and are also able to speak to the organizers about any concerns they might have, but be rest assured that your girls are in the best hands here in Portsmouth.
In the mean time, you can meet the FOCH team here.
