The Community Ambassadors from the high schools in the Wyre Forest visited the “#TellSomeone” workshops at Stourport high school on Thursday 28th March 2019.
This was a really eye-opening experience for us all as we got to see the different ways to deliver a workshop to students depending on the audience. It was very informative for us as students as well as informative from a Community Ambassador point of view. We all found the different workshops interesting as they covered important current issues around County Lines, Knife and Gang Crime, CSE, and the consequences of what can happen aiming to reduce temptation to put yourself at risk despite what appears tempting and rewarding.
The energy that the professionals delivering the 30 minute presentations put into them was reflected in the response of the students. We hope to be able to bring some of these techniques and strategies back to King Charles 1 School and eventually get some workshops in and get a further opportunity to observe them, and to learn from them.
Hopefully in the closing months of the academic year 2018/19 we can implement these strategies into work with students and we can also help students and give them advice on these matters. On behalf of all of the Community Ambassadors at King Charles 1 School I would like to thank the staff at Stourport High School for the opportunity to observe, we would also like to thank the Stourport community ambassadors and the professionals who that day wouldn’t have been possible without.
