In October 2015 SI Solihull worked with Hannah Borg of Cherished to run a Girls’ Conference. Hannah and her team of mentors put on a brilliant conference for 60 girls plus a training session for their teachers. The girls sat at circular tables beautifully decorated with items that they would use in the interactive sessions that would follow.
Around the perimeter of the room there were tables showcasing various organisations including the Guides. There was a photo booth where they could have some fun, a novel sweetie table, a crafty corner, and a chill out den for relaxing. The speakers held the girl’s attention, and pitched their talks at just the right level for the 14 to 16 year old girls. The girls all received a goodie bag which contained amongst other things Suzanne Virdee’s book “A Teenager Girl’s Guide to being Fabulous” plus the Soroptimist ‘Loves me Loves me not Bookmark”.
