Welcome back to school. Hope you all had a fun summer!
To give you a quick idea of what we’ve been up to…..
In between lovely holidays to Loch Ness, Aberdeen, Rugby and France, we’ve been doing lots of work on the Smart School Council Community, a charity we’re setting up and supporting.
It’s led by fifteen founding schools who we know have AMAZING student voice/school councils. Any young person, teacher or governor can join for FREE and get some help (or help others) with your school council. Good deal, right?
Head over to www.smartschoolcouncils.org.uk to get involved.
As a social enterprise based in Tottenham, we’ve been busy helping out after the riots. As well as donating and sorting clothes, Asher’s been writing about the subject and also been on the radio talking about it. That second link features a hilarious picture of him.
Related to these events, and the questions about education and engagement in the UK today, we’re working on an exciting new film project with the Carib Theatre Company and Franklyn Lane Productions. We’ll keep you posted.
We also had a great time at the UKYP Annual Sitting. LOADS of really engaged young people who are a credit to their areas and the UKYP too. Here’s Asher next to our stand:
And here’s our map where you could rate your school council:
Finally, don’t forget that you can get us in to do some training in your school or cluster of schools.
We’ve got lots of training booked, including trips to the Republic of Ireland and the Czech Republic.
Importantly, we’re working with many local schools in Tottenham as part of the Smart School Council Community too.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for lots of useful advice and blogs!
