We strongly believe in the endless benefits of storytelling for individuals, families and communities. Read on to get a better idea of how we aim to enhance these benefits for your school.
Professional storytellers study stories and the art of storytelling; they are masters of the craft but are rarely utilised in schools beyond ‘one-off’ workshops. Tell Us All enlist the best professional storytellers to work with children throughout the programme, engage the whole school and, crucially, engage local communities.
Parents are most influential.
Parental engagement is key for long term change beyond the programme. We aim to build parents’ confidence and gain their support. We will share practical ways to nurture their child’s language development, focusing on storytelling in the home.
Stories are for sharing.
When we put on our storytelling performance to conclude the programme, we invite different groups from the community such as the elderly, families from local special needs schools, support groups etc. We aim to work with a range of community members and organisations to create positive shared experiences across local communities and promote schools as social hubs.
