We are delighted to announce a new partnership with the School of Kindness; an organisation that echoes our ethos perfectly.
As the “Drama School with a Heart for all ages”, Dramatis is a multi-generational drama school rooted in Kindness. We strongly believe that by creating a kind and supportive environment, we build confidence 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 School of Kindness which aims to “spread kindness and empower children by helping them to realise that the little choices they make every day have the power to change people’s lives, improve their own health and well-being, and ultimately change the world”. The organisation believes that kind is the most important thing a child can be and they help to create a culture of kindness in schools across the UK by delivering free workshops, resources and lesson plans. They also provide financial support for the delivery of small projects in schools.
As Suzy Duxbury, Dramatis Principal explains: “We are super excited to be partnering with 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 the School of Kindness 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”.
The School of Kindness is part of the 52 Lives charity. 52 Lives aims to change people’s lives and spread kindness with the help of almost 100,000 supporters around the world. What began as some weekly school kindness workshops has grown into a whole suite of projects and resources to help schools encourage kindness and, most importantly, help children to understand the effect kindness can have on themselves, on others and on the world.
