This year has brought about many changes for our children and it is increasingly apparent that there is a significant rise in stress and anxiety.
It is no secret that the pressures of delivering national curriculum requirements, have sometimes left schools with gaps in resourcing the more creative subjects. I was delighted that focus was given to the wellbeing of children returning to school. Educational settings made space for creativity, we observed children finding comfort and success in creativity – both in the personal expression and in how they related to one another after time apart.
It is my hope that next year, I will be able to continue with creative workshops and continue to provide for parents and carers who have huge demands placed on them. I want to provide the opportunity for more parents and carers to spend time focusing on their own well-being, developing new skills and getting to know one another in a supportive and friendly environment.
