‘Embrace’ film screening packs a punch

Posted on November 23, 2018


As part of our ongoing wellbeing programme at The Maynard, we welcomed parents and their daughters to a special screening of the film, ‘Embrace’, in our Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday 13 November 2018. Our thanks to the Head Girl Team who orchestrated the whole event, having already seen the film in school last term and who were driven by a desire to share its message with a much wider audience.

In the words of one mother, “What a powerful film; whilst showing the tragic effects of body loathing that is becoming ever more prevalent in our young girls, it is also uplifting with a positive message on how we can reverse this and help to make girls and women proud of who they are and what they look like.”

Supporting wellbeing – caring for the physical, mental and emotional health of our students – is central to everything we do and underpins our whole ideology and identity as a school. We hope that by extending events such as these to an outside audience, we can continue to support our own students whilst working to ensure the positivity and happiness of our wider community.
