We have just had a longstanding dream of ours come true when we had our first ever Voice Workshop for School Principals over the past weekend! Thank you to principals, deputy principals and other support staff from Petunia, Kannemeyer, Agape, Fanie Theron, Prestwich, Timour Hall, Pinelands North and Forres Primary Schools for your the input and engagements.
The workshop was made possible through the generosity of George Ducharme and Francois Conradie of Ducharme Consulting who sponsored our workshop and beautiful workbooks - designed by the talented Celeste Hulme!
Our thanks too to Kim van der Hoven who offered us the hall at Forres School.
George and Francois wrote this about why they decided to support us in this dream of ours to take Narrative into whole school communities:
“As donors we are delighted to be involved with this initiative. We trust , that through the interventions of the Cape Town Narrative Co-op, school teachers and principals will be empowered with some of the vital skills and techniques utilised by experienced therapists, so that they, as lay counsellors, can help vulnerable young learners to develop preferred narratives for their lives. We firmly believe this will help many vulnerable children to re - story their lives."
