Project: Bloom


Firefly’s Bloom program was in direct response to community need in providing a support for young people during early adolescence.

Project Details

Firefly’s work in the Bay and Basin is based on listening to the community and coming up with solutions together. The community wanted to see more support for young people throughout adolescence, especially during the pre and post impacts of COVID.

In response to this, the Firefly team developed the Bloom program for delivery in Term 4 of 2020 and repeated it in Term 3 of 2021. This program looked at supporting girls in Years 5 and 6 at primary school, to add tools to their personal toolkits to help build resilience, self-esteem, well-being, kindness, healthy relationships, gratitude, goal setting and mindfulness.

The seven-week program linked in with skilled community members to help support the delivery of each workshop. Some of these activities were floristry, painting, origami, and exercise methods.

Bloom had participation and support from several students from across Bay and Basin public schools.
