BHSF sponsors school ‘Nurture Rooms’
Rooms designed for quiet study and discussion by pupils have opened at two Birmingham schools thanks to support from BHSF.
“Nurture Rooms” have been opened by BHSF chief executive Peter Maskell at Birmingham Oratory RC Primary and Nursery School and St John’s CE Primary School in Ladywood, both neighbours of BHSF headquarters.
Said Mr Maskell: “The idea is that children have a quiet area where they can get away from the general hub-hub of school life. The rooms have been kitted out and decorated to provide the opportunity for quiet discussion or reading.”
Clare Dickinson, head teacher at the Oratory school, said: “We are extremely grateful to BHSF for their generosity in helping to establish our Nurture Room. It will become a valuable asset to school life.”
Sarah Lea, headteacher at St John’s said: “BHSF’s generosity has allowed us to
create a room to develop pupils’ self-esteem and confidence when both may be a
little low in the classroom. It has made a great difference to school life”.
