It was with great pride and joy that we finally launched our beautiful, peaceful classroom space at Hillwood Primary School in Lavender Hill on 4 August 2022, with guests from our incredible sponsors – Truworths and Earthchild Clothing – as well as teachers, the Hillwood Primary School Principal, Mr Alkana, and of course our little yogis who will be using the space the most. Earthchild Project has been working in Hillwood Primary School for over 10 years, with the ongoing obstacle of not having our own space from which to teach our Programmes.
Lavender Hill is a community with particular safety challenges, creating the need for a peaceful, positive space where children and teachers can feel safe. Our new classroom will provide a safe space where thousands of children will have access to daily yoga and life skills lessons, as well as extra murals, teachers workshops, and holiday programmes.
“When learners are being taken to the yoga room, it’s like taking them away from what’s happening in Lavender Hill. It’s like allowing them to be a child.” Mr Alkana
We are deeply grateful to our sponsors from Truworths and Earthchild Clothing, as well as everyone who assisted in the planning and building of the school which took many dedicated years. This classroom has already proved to be an invaluable addition to our Project at Hillwood Primary and we would love by the end of 2023 for all of our 8 schools to have classrooms.
