Generation R

Our recent visit from Making Generation R has inspired pupils to reflect on thier own resilience.  Led by veteran service personnel, their personal stories of resilience and determination had pupils listening in rapt silence, before considering how they can build and develop thier own resilience in the face of adversity.

Pupils commented “Stephen was amazing; the way he described the little steps he could take, to even get out of bed following the blast from the IED, made me think about the things I find difficult. ”

” It gives you perspective on the things you find hard – they aren’t that hard really”.

Year 11 students then participated in a workshop, which has inspired some students to conisder what they can do to support this, and other local charities.  We aim to be running some events soon.
