IMPACT - Stepping Out Activity


IMPACT went along to Burgh Primary and delivered our Stepping Out activity which is part of The Telling your Story strand of IMPACT. 
The activity aimed to increase the children's emotional resilience, by asking them what they would do to cheer themselves up if they where feeling sad. We worked with a total of 145 children, and the day was great success! Children where drawing things like "Talk to a friend... Play with my favorite toy.... bounce back... get a hug from my mum" 
All the art work created will be used to create an art exhibition later on in the year. Click here to view some of the artwork from the day.

Burnhill Family History Project


Burnhill Children's Action Group have now completed their Family History Project.  The project looked at life for young people growing up in Burnhill today and compared and contrasted it to that of their parents and grandparents.

Burnhill Action Group displayed the results of their re-visit survey at the event and the Children's Group showcased their exhibition which will included photographs of historic Rutherglen, an interesting look at participants' taste in music and a quiz. If you missed the exhibition, but would like another chance to see it, the history project will also be on display at Burnhill's Gala Day which will be held on Saturday 16th August from 11am until 3pm at West and Wardlawhill Parish Church. Please come along and participate in the quiz. The winner will be announced in the week beginning 18th August 2014.
