Children participated in education programme aimed at strengthening the relationship between children, schoolwork and family life
Children from a primary school in Wembley have ‘graduated’ from a new education programme aimed at strengthening the relationship between children, schoolwork and family life.
The pupils, from Chalkhill Primary School, in Barnhill Road, have successfully completed the Families and School Together (FAST) programme.
The eight week course, saw 35 families graduate from the programme which has been endorsed by the United Nations (UN) and backed by Save the Children.
Typical activities include singing, family games such as emotional charades and special play, sitting down together to eat a family meal and supporting parents in setting boundaries.
It aims to provide a fun and relaxed space for families to experience a mixture of play and learning activities, hands on coaching and support for parents and carers.
Rose Ashton Head teacher at Chalkhill said: “This has been a fantastic opportunity for the Chalkhill Community to come together to embed a strong, lasting partnership.
