Dec 28: Today’s session was hands on. Girls were provided with magazines and other art supplies. They were given a project called “Real Beauty” where they as a team had to come up with their understanding of “Real Beauty.”All groups made three posters very beautiful and different which they shared with the class. It was very interesting to observe how physical beauty was not the main theme of their posters but an overall compliment of natural and physical beauty. Their choices were surprising and included an appreciation of inner beauty, social service and a good heart. One of the girls wrote “people don’t become a real beauty with a pretty face, inside talent and skill make a real beauty.” Girls continued their volleyball session.
