We are delighted to announce a new partnership with 52 Lives, an organisation that echoes our ethos perfectly.
As a drama school rooted in kindness, we strongly believe that by creating a nurturing and supportive environment, we build key life skills in pupils of all ages. This naturally leads to them performing better, whether that be on the stage or in daily life.
To help us create this environment across all aspects of the business (and especially with our youth pupils), we have partnered with the 52 Lives which aims to “inspire people to be kind”.
Every week, 52 Lives helps to change someone’s life. They choose someone in need of help, share their story on their website and social media, and request what that person needs. Their kind supporters then spread the word, offer help if they can, change that person’s life – and inspire more kindness in others.
52 Lives works with thousands of children every year through their School of Kindness. They run free Kindness Workshops for primary schools, which aim to empower children by helping them realise that the little choices they make every day have the power to change the world, while improving their own physical and mental health at the same time. They also have a Kindness Fund, providing small grants to children with amazing ideas for spreading kindness in their school or community, as well as a range of free lesson plans and resources for teachers.
As Suzy Duxbury, Dramatis Principal explains: “We are super excited to be partnering with 52 Lives and the School of Kindness and have numerous activities in the pipeline which we look forward to sharing with our pupils in due course!”.
Greig Trout, Director of Kindness at 52 Lives adds: “Through our work, we help children to understand the effect kindness can have on themselves, on others and on the world. Whilst we normally focus on primary schools, we are excited to be partnering with Dramatis Community Drama School to help them in their aims to pro-actively create a kind and supportive environment that their pupils of all ages can thrive in”.
