This year as part of Body Image Club’s annual SOUL performance, 80 students participated in a flash mob. SOUL, which stands for Sources Of Unconditional Love, is an organisation that aims to create a safe platform where young girls can express their beliefs through dance, spoken word and singing. This year, on International Friendship Day, Carmel College as well as four other schools around New Zealand performed a flash mob dance. Carmel students performed at Smales’ Farm. The main goal of this performance was to bring attention to what SOUL is doing for young girls around New Zealand and how their message – to dissolve prejudice through unconditional love – is crucial to create a safer and more caring society.
