Be expressive, be creative

We’re delighted to be introducing Experiential Arts sessions to our range of sessional services at CPotential.

The sessions will be run by Anne Onwusiri, formerly the Arts Project Coordinator at Woodstar School, who explains: “Experiential arts is all about the creative experience. The focus is on the experience itself, rather than the output, as a way for disabled children and young people to express themselves in a safe and supportive space.”

The sessions will be for children and young people aged 7-16. They will include making art and crafts, drama or dance, photography or film-making, and Anne will gently support each one to get the most out of whatever they choose to do.

She adds: “Taking part can involve lots of useful skills helping the child or young person with, for example, their communication, hand-eye coordination, mobility, thinking and social skills. Just as importantly, the sessions are also fun and help build self-esteem and confidence.”

The 1-hour sessions will be run in six-week blocks on Saturdays during term time, starting on 3 November 2018.

Celebrating World Cerebral Palsy Day

9 October 2017

We are here – and we want the world to know about it.

That’s what the children at Woodstar School and Nursery said loud and clear to celebrate World Cerebral Palsy Day on Friday 6th October.

They had fun making their own posters, which we displayed in our charity shops. And they enjoyed a visit on Friday to our Muswell Hill Broadway shop to share the day with lots of people they met.

Gabbie Czifra, Head of Conductive Education Services, said:  “We support World Cerebral Palsy Day because we agree with its aims to ensure that children and adults with cerebral palsy have the same rights, access and opportunities as anyone else. This tallies with our passion to empower the children who come to our school and Centre to achieve their potential.”
