Turning Dreams into a Reality
The two-day workshop saw a group of pupils take part in a number of challenges to develop their personal learning and thinking skills. They were encouraged to approach problems in different ways to try to find a solution, in line with Honda's philosophy that 'success is 99% failure'.
It culminated with a project in which they had to consider what they would like to change in their world and how they would go about it. Pupils gave a presentation outlining their idea, how they would market it and how they would test it. KSA can then apply for £500 funding from the School of Dreams towards the cost of one of the projects.
The workshop was delivered with help from staff at Kettering's Richard Sanders Honda to nine to 13-year-olds, including pupils from Millbrook Junior School.
Mark Sanders, Dealer Principal at Richard Sanders Honda, 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. We believe children and young adults deserve all the help they can get."
Claudia Barr was among those who took part in the workshop. She said: "It showed me that when you set yourself a goal, you shouldn't give up even if it gets tough. They also told us to focus on the details of things, even the smallest of things, as that can make all the difference."
