These are the generation that has missed out most during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these young people have been unable to interact with their peers in the traditional way. They are now needing support to discover and explore the vital skills of communication, creativity, team building and much more.
At the same time our schools and students are under pressure. Strapped for time and resources our schools are stretched. A focus on set areas of the curriculum has meant that arts subjects have been harder to implement.
In addition, many pupils will never be able to access the arts outside of school as family finances don’t allow for this expense in the weekly budget.
Research from the Arts Council has found that:
You can support your local community by sponsoring a Roots 4 Well-Being Programme in a school.
BHVA Ltd’s Roots 4 Wellbeing workshops is all about building the strong foundations for our children and young people through the arts – with the support of our local business community, we are STRONGER TOGETHER.
BHVA can do this by:
Our Roots 4 Wellbeing programme will provide 2 full day in-school sessions by trained members of the BHVA team, alongside supporting help sheets that will be provided to the school which can be utilised by the school staff.
The focus will be Key Stage One and Two (Years Reception – 6).
Each day will be made up of two-hour sessions, so the student body can be split in year groups or key-stages. Focussing on voice and movement, the student will discover how they can use these concepts to take part in mindfulness to improve their wellbeing and resilience.
These workshops will look to develop the whole person: ensuring students develop confidence, believe in their own abilities, build resilience to face challenges and problem solve, express opinions whilst participating in constructive dialogues with peers. Throughout all of this they will be celebrate personal growth and achievements, sharing these successes in a safe environment.
Sponsoring a workshop allows us to share the joy of the arts with young people (some who will never have access to the arts outside of school), as well as helping them to learn mindfulness techniques that they can integrate into daily life.
