When facilitating their first adult workshops, our two St. John’s Community Ambassador teams played host to different teams of adults.
St. John’s CAPE Team 1 hosted a group of 6 Pupil Support Assistants who work with teachers/pupils in the school. Later the same day, St. John’s CAPE Team 2 worked with a group of Police School-Liaison Officers.
The Community Ambassadors guided participating adults through a number of activities, including Sandy’s Story and the Ginormous Dice Game, which are designed to showcase the children’s work and their learning attained through the programme. Importantly, the children were able to ask some difficult questions that required thoughtful responses from the 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.
A big thank you to all of the adults who took part and played such a positive role in making the workshops meaningful and relevant for our Ambassadors.
Remember, we’ll be back to check up on your pledges…
