An evening of SMILE-ing!
Last week, Year 9 and 10 boys attended the celebration event for the SMILE project at the Record Shop in The Mall.
The project was created by internationally acclaimed artist Kay Rufai and is supported by the Mayor of London and is rooted in the 8 pillars of happiness; the impact of the happiness levels of a person, which in turn impact the ability to engage positively in relationships with self, others, and wider society.
Ms Wallace, Mr Barnes and Ms Boothman attended and were extremely proud to see the boys' images in the mall as well as to hear them talk about what they had learned about themselves during the program. Challenging limiting stereotypes is a priority at Woodside and as we work to support our students' into carving out their own identities and being proud of who they are, it was an absolute pleasure to see our boys take up space with smiles on their faces.
What a wonderful start to Black History Month!
