We are very proud to reveal our amazing Virtual Awards Room: https://your.socialenterprise.academy/mod/page/view.php?id=3186 – take your time, explore the room and make sure you sign the guest book!
We are excited to be awarding 55 schools this year from all across Scotland and you can find out more about each school in the Showcase room. The Awards will be open all week and teachers, young people, parents, carers, supporters and stakeholders can join the room at any time during this week and interact with the pages, watch videos, ask questions to the schools involved and celebrate! The discussion boards will grow throughout the week as more young people visit the Awards, make comments, ask and answer questions.
The schools each have their very own Awards room, with a personalised video from the Education Facilitator who worked with them, sending a congratulations from us and some links just for them. We are also waiting for a congratulations video from John Swinney which has been delayed but will be added to each room as soon as it arrives.
We hope you enjoys this year’s Awards,
‘The child may not remember but the body remembers’.
Researchers have discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. The documentary ‘Resilience’ reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk of disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. ‘Resilience’, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress-and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.
