New Girl's Group at Blackville School

This year, a new group surfaced at Blackville school for the grade 6 and 7 girls. Mrs. Breau, the school's guidance counselor, and Allison Mazzorato, a graduate student obtaining a Masters of Education degree in counselling, wanted to offer the middle school grades a group that would be fun and useful.

This was started on October 17, and participants usually meet on Monday afternoons in the school art room.The group's purpose is to meet and discuss what it is like being a girl in today's society.

This assembly doesn't have a set name yet, but is referred to as the girl's group. This is a closed group, which means that the same people attend every meeting. The goal of these meetings is to inspire girls to feel more empowered in themselves and their relationships.
