Over the years, Newmarket school have had the Life Education van visit our school. The children have loved working with Harold and learning all about respect of others and of self. So when the opportunity came to be part of the celebrations and to see The great Gatsby, I answered yes to attending the event. What I took from the evening was how important it was that communities had ownership of the projects.
We were introduced to Caring and Co who were a group of high school students who won regional awards with their project to ensure that children would have the opportunity to attend Life Education sessions with Harold.
I took with me our current Mandarin Language Assistant and her friend.
We had an enjoyable evening and like our children I was excited to meet Harold and get my photo taken with him.
