“Creativity, movement, health and wellbeing have always been uppermost in my thinking and teaching. Having the opportunity to develop this further was the start of this exciting venture and the birth of Workshops for Schools and Nurseries.” Adele Deane, B.Ed Hons
Each practitioner or artist engaged by WFS has experience working in educational settings and are able to provide workshops that are fun, exciting, challenging and memorable. WFS was established to answer a growing demand from schools for more specialist work for children in the form of creative workshops. It began with Yoga, then specialist Science workshops and now incorporates a wide range of creative ideas and activities delivered either as regular clubs, hourly sessions, whole or half day workshops, artist in residence weeks, staff in service training events and much more.
Healthy School workshops offered children a chance to experience the delights of: yoga, rest and relaxation, Tai Chi and Massage. Classes are designed to stimulate children’s powers of imagination, maintain their natural flexibility and teach them to breathe correctly. This helps to promote improved concentration levels, better sleep patterns and greater self-esteem!
The aim at WFS is to tailor work to each school or organisation’s specific needs and this is what makes WFS different. The range of curriculum areas and skills offered is extensive and we deliver many forward looking and innovative projects. Our practice is creative, developmental and offers progression wherever possible. Many workshops encourage team work, collaborative work as well as individual nurturing.
We can offer Yoga, Peer Massage (MISP) Rest and Relaxation Programmes, All forms of Dance, Drama, Visual and Expressive Art Workshop, Crafts, Science/DT, International workshops, cultural music sessions, as well as artist in residence projects. We can also plan and deliver extended school and transitional projects specifically to meet the needs of individuals settings.
