Primary Parliament returned last week with delegates from 23 Nottingham schools coming down to the Council House in the Old Market Square to share their ideas on how we as a city can support them and their schools in developing whole and healthy children and adults. The aim was to leave the event with a plan and programme of activities for both school and the wider community that help do this. Of course, as Opportunity Notts, we were very supportive of all of this!
In the morning the delegates rotated through three different workshops exploring some of the different factors that go towards building a whole and healthy child. This included using the amazing brain scanner in the Positive Thinking workshop and making a response to “how are we creative?” in the Creativity and Expression one!
Then it was down to preparation time for the presentations to Cllrs Mellen and Webster in the council chamber. These amazing presentations included role-play, dance, drama, poetry, speeches and even a rap, as well as some amazing art work and posters supporting the incredible ideas for the whole and healthy children and adults activities.
We’re looking forward to hearing how these activity plans take shape in your school!
