Your daughters will be entering a world of work where the jobs they will be doing have not yet been invented and solving problems we cannot imagine.
Confident young women are more likely to embrace the skills needed for this unknown world. Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of 'Lean In', believes that women fundamentally lack confidence in themselves.
How does an all-girls school develop confidence in young women?
The National Coalition of Girls’ Schools which has this to say:
“In Girls' schoools, time in the classroom is spent learning. They teach girls that there is enormous potential and power in being a girl. At a girls’ school, a girl occupies every role: every part in the play and every position on every team and is asked to answer every question. Not only does she have a wealth of avenues for self-exploration and development: she also has a wealth of peer role models.”
At St Dominic’s we work hard at developing self-confidence in our young women: spiritually and morally, academically, on the sports field, in cultural activities and in our leadership programmes.
We adore our learners, but we are also mindful of the road they must travel. We strive to equip your daughters with the skills that will be essential to 21 Century learning.
In nurturing our young women, we encourage a growth mindset – a “you can do this” attitude.
No dream is too big, and no ceiling is too high. This is our wish for your daughters.
