Through our work in Champions in Schools, Positive Coaching Scotland and our growth mindset programme, I am constantly encouraged that we really can make a difference to the lives and ambitions of young people growing up in Scotland. To hear a child say that they now understand that they can improve their lives through hard work and effort is absolutely priceless.
Life is a constant series of challenges and learning opportunities no matter what age you are - but if you approach it with a light-hearted attitude and a smile on your face it is amazing how our perceptions can change.
Take a peek at the picture accompanying this blog, we’d hoped to use this for our Christmas card but one wee boy wasn’t feeling in the mood on the day of our photo shoot!
Have a wonderful and restful festive season and on behalf of the team a big thank you all for your support this year.
