Today we were privileged to have The Message Trust visit our school as part of the Higher Tour. The Message Trust is a Christian charity that has worked in schools across the UK for over 25 years, helping young people think about faith, life and positive values. Today, lead by one of their creative teams, Brightline, the message focused on tolerance, anti-racism, diversity, building self-esteem and being positive.
The Message Trust have been working alongside other charities and Matthew Foster (Director of Engage Trust UK – www.engagetrustuk.org – a charity providing detached youth work and workshops for schools promoting emotional well being ) helped to coordinate our visit today with Gerry Denston who runs the youth group ‘Blaze’ at the Kingsway Church in Wombourne Village.
Brightline are currently touring the West Midlands and will be performing on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 March at the All Nations Church, Temple Street, Wolverhampton (behind The Way Youth Zone). Tickets are £3 each or 2 for £5 and are currently available from the school reception or you can book online at highertour.com/midlands. Tickets bought on the door will be £5 each.
We would like to thank The Message Trust, Brightline (Joe, Lucy, Jacob, Joel & Daniel), Gerry Denston and Matthew Foster for providing such an engaging and positive experience for our students today, which we all thoroughly enjoyed – as reported by one student ‘the best assembly ever!’ We hop that their message will have had a positive impact on their lives.
