We’ve received the impact assessment sheets from Loanhead Primary School, and we’ve picked a random selection of the comments which the children made after our programme had been delivered.
Remember, prior to our visit these children knew nothing about Young Tommy Morris, or his father, nor their place in Scottish and global history: the curriculum does not promote their achievements, nor recognise the challenges they had to overcome to make their own way in life. With help from your donations, we can bring these lessons to life and give all children the tools to chase their dreams.
The children were asked What is the most important knowledge you have learned today?
“Don’t let people tell you that you can’t achieve your goals” Jaden, 9 years old
“When people ask you what you want to be, rather than say ‘I would like to be’ say that ‘I am going to be'” Rachel, 9 years old
“That to never give up on chasing your dreams like Tommy” Emily-Jane, 10 years old
“Use self-confidence and resilience to never give up and believe in yourself” Julia, 10 years old
“To follow your own path in life and don’t let people bring you down” Caitlyn, 10 years old
Below is a link to a short video offered by the P7 class teacher, Mrs Burton, to help summarise the effect it had on the children that day… you can hear in the background that they were still highly motivated by the experience!
Mr Nelson – Learning classroom assistant
“The children in Primary 6 were thrilled to learn about Young Tommy Morris, a lost Scottish hero. William’s passion for the Tommy’s Honour Education Trust is infectious and this was shared by all the children as they discovered about a forgotten national treasure”
Mrs Wallace – P6 Class teacher
“The experience teaches the children about a Scottish golfing pioneer and life skills which are transferable to daily life. Truly inspiring!”
