The peer guide project for this term will be Confession Wednesday.
Confession Wednesday is designed to encourage girls who may not initially feel comfortable to approach the peer guides or counselling staff to begin sharing what they have been going through. Often when we keep things to ourselves they tend to escalate really quickly in our minds and we are only able to see the worst case scenario. Writing worries down will be a powerful first step, and it is our hope that the learners of Wynberg will start sharing more, so that we can support them through their struggles.
We would like to encourage all WGHS girls to write down short confessions and put them into the box. The confessions can be about something that you are currently experiencing, something you regret doing, or anything that is currently bothering you.
Please note that ‘confession’ is not meant in a negative sense, but rather a opportunity to put into writing what is on your mind and heart.
The confessions will be completely anonymous and confidential. Peer guides and counselling staff will treat these confessions with the respect that they deserve.
Confession Wednesday will run Wednesday, the 1st of February, and then again next week the 8th of February.
Any questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
