Our second team of Abbeyhill Community Ambassadors played host to a group of Police School-Liaison Officers.
In their workshop, Community Ambassadors were able to guide the adults through a number of activities, showcasing their work and their learning attained through the programme. Importantly, the activities allowed the Ambassadors to ask some difficult questions, which required thoughtful responses from the participating adults.
Our Ambassadors finished by asking the adult participants to make a pledge to them. This pledge requires adults to think about what they will do to make children’s lives healthier, happier and safer, at home, at school and in their communities.
Due to an extremely busy day and emergency calls, only two Officers were able to attend on this occasion. So, to Verity and Tara, we would like to say a big thank you for taking part and playing such a positive role in making the workshops meaningful and relevant for our Ambassadors. We hope to see your colleagues one day when they are less busy.
Remember, we’ll be back to check up on your pledges…
