This week we have been planning what sort of activities we can do for the next 8 weeks of Stanwix Healthy Minds.
We are planning non-uniform days, disco nights, movie and pyjama days and sweet Fridays.
This week we have held meetings in smaller groups to discuss different fundraiser ideas.
Pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 will be participating in an exciting 8-week mini competition designed to introduce children to leadership, entrepreneurship and the world of business from a young age whilst building confidence and self-belief in children as they showcase hidden talents along the way.
The scheme has been running for 8 years and is a great way for businesses and schools to forge ongoing links and help organisations develop their own staff in the process. This year the project focusses on ‘making a difference’. The children, with support from their business mentors, will have 8 weeks to lead a digital campaign on an issue that matters most to them or something they want to make better in their local communities.
Our school has been linked with Online Systems and we are working with Kerrie who is one of the managers of the company. She will be sharing her expertise in business in which the children will be able to learn and apply these business skills.
We have decided on the theme of ‘Wellbeing ‘and making a difference in the school community. There will be exciting events occurring during these 8 weeks so please look out for further information in due course and any support would be most welcome.
