We were delighted to welcome our ex-pupil, Samantha Jabangwe and her band Soulbox to Saint Paul’s as part of The Message Trust’s programme.
The bands performed to our pupils and concentrated on two main things:
1. Love Yourself
“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for all other relationships”
The aim was to help pupils coming out of this long COVID pandemic by building up their self esteem, looking at wellbeing and resilience and inspire them to..
2. Love their neighbour / their community.
Looking at the impact of being a part of and being a positive influence within their community bringing hope to oneself and others.
