New Year, New Beginnings
Feeling creative or want to get a few things off your mind? Then, this activity can help. We have created self-standing 3D thought trees! Yes, that’s right: mini trees.
This activity is an opportunity for you to think about the past 12 months. A chance to reflect on your personal experiences of living through a global pandemic and how it has affected your life and others; whether that’s in a positive and/or negative way. It’s also an opportunity to plan for the future and think about your hopes and dreams for 2021. Not to mention it can help relieve stress and anxiety.
So I hear you ask, why a tree!? Well, the thought process behind this is that a tree grows from a seed. Seeds are a symbol of life, growth and hope which can last for many, many years. Together with each individual tree that is returned, we will then create a ‘Forest of Hope’ for 2021. This will be displayed on campus for staff, students and visitors to see.
In true WP fashion, there will be a competition for you to enter. All we ask is that you return your creation using the pre-paid self-addressed envelope provided by Wednesday 31st March 2021. By doing so they will be entered into a prize draw to win CU goodies and an Amazon voucher.
Teachers, youth workers and other professionals - should you wish to request enough activity packs for your class or youth group, please email Liam Norton with the subject line 'WP activities 2021'.
