In their Companies, the girls meet each week to work through a programme of activities suited to their age and ability following a syllabus of spiritual, physical, educational and service subjects.

The main emphasis is on fun and enjoyment as they learn to work and play together. Activities include crafts, baking, games and entertaining. Christmas can be a visit to the panto, or puppet theatre. At the end of our GB year, each company has an Annual Display – the girls entertain their families and friends by demonstrating some of their activities, and each girl receives a token of recognition for her commitment of attendance and badges for awards gained.
