THE dreams of schoolchildren were closer to becoming reality after a workshop run by Honda.

The ‘School of Dreams’ team visited Cromwell Community College in Chatteris last week to provide a free two-day ‘thinking skills’ workshop for nine to 13-year-old pupils.

Youngsters from Manea Community Primary School, Somersham Primary School, Cavalry Primary School, Lionel Walden Primary School, Glebelands Primary School, Kingsfield Primary School and Thomas Eaton Community Primary School also attended the workshop, giving children the chance to get to know their teachers of the future and peers from other schools.

The School of Dreams programme helps young people to understand the importance of pursuing their dreams, and taught skills and strategies to help turn their dreams into reality.

Nicola LeGood from Cromwell said: “It was fantastic to see pupils from Cromwell and our partner schools working together on two days of inspiring activity. They worked well in teams and came up with lots of new ideas to help us all achieve our dreams.”
