Understanding the world around us
We had the pleasure of welcoming two representatives from the NSPCC to Davenies this week who delivered a workshop aimed at 10-11 year olds. The workshop focused on the world in which we live, helping the boys to be more aware of their surroundings and the dangers they could face.
The boys were poised with a variety of questions regarding their personal safety and asked to discuss them, proving them with an opportunity to think the situations through themselves. A variety of films prompted some well-considered discussions, helping the boys to understand the world around them.
As well as questions and discussions, the boys were told about help available to them from the NSPCC and other organisations and encouraged to talk freely through situations that may concern them. They were given practical help and advice and offered suggestions as to how they could help others in difficult situations.
