Options: Assemblies and Workshops
We offer sessions in two formats: assemblies and workshops.
We recommend specific timetables comprised of a mixture of both of these formats.
Assemblies can be delivered to a large group, and tend to consist of storytelling mixed with music performance to inspire and ignite pupils' imagination and aspirations.
We recommend 45 minutes - 1 hour for assemblies.
Workshops are for smaller groups, with whom Alim can concentrate on particular issues (such as exam stress, confidence, and tolerance) with a focus on participation and engagement with the children.
We recommend 45 minute workshops.
We recommend these specific timetables comprised of a mixture of assemblies and workshops to ensure that students receive the most that Storie Storie can offer - an overview as well as an in-depth, interactive session.
We are happy to be flexible on these structures, however please note the inclusion of breaks within the schedule.
Our performers can focus on any nearly any issue that the school would like to address, be it healthy eating to exam stress. The following are some of the more common focuses that schools ask us to provide.
Black History Month
Uplifting Black students
Celebrating Black accomplishments
It’s important to acknowledge Black History Month for many reasons: to keep the histories of Black culture alive and resonating, to remember the incredible contributions that Black people have had to world history, and to raise up the knowledge of Black achievements and contributions.
It’s particularly important to commemorate BHM at schools to show students the establishment’s dedication to supporting and uplifting Black students.
Goals and aspirations
The emotion cycle
Results day can be nerve-wracking for students. What happens after they receive their results? For some, there will be smiling faces and for others, possibly feelings of failure that can affect the will to perform well in the future.
Whatever grades your students obtain, we highlight the face that progress is always possible in the future.
We kick off with music to shake off any gloom in the room. From there, we share inspiring stories and key techniques to cope with emotions and rebuilding confidence.
