Honda's Dream initiative visits Bitterne Park School for workshop
4:10pm Thursday 17th January 2013 in Education
PUPILS at a Southampton school are dreaming of better futures thanks to an innovative project aimed at giving them the skills and strategies needed to achieve their goals.
A team of education experts from Honda’s School of Dreams initiative visited Bitterne Park School for a two-day workshop with students and teachers, helping them discover new, creative and fun ways of learning.
The scheme challenges youngsters to work with staff to learn from real-life examples of people who have achieved their dreams.
Bitterne Park is the first school in the city to take part in the initiative, which has worked with around 8,500 children and adults nationally in the past five years.
Mark Busby, a manager at Hendy Honda in Southampton, who took part in the event, said: “It is great to support the workshop in our local school. “To help children understand they can turn their dreams into reality by learning to use strategies in their early lives will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the local community.”
