Muslim Girls Fence: Focus on Wellbeing

A group of students in Tower Hamlets have co-directed and written a film to discuss the importance of having creative, physical, and safe spaces like Muslim Girls Fence in schools, that focus on their wellbeing and mental health. The film 'Centring Muslim Girls’ Mental Wellbeing' is aimed towards teachers and will be launched alongside lesson plans, resources and exercises to help teachers reflect on what they can do in their practice, as well as the wider school, to allow Muslim girls to bring their whole selves.

​​​​​​​Are they creating spaces and learning environments that give space for Muslim girls to fully and creatively express themselves?
