It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men
We would like to introduce ourselves as the newly established project ACYCLE (African and Caribbean Youth Creative Learning Experience).
ACYCLE has been created by our team of teachers and educators to play a critical role in raising the bar socially, educationally and culturally for this group of children, and give them a sense of pride and confidence in who they are as children and as the successful leaders of tomorrow.
We plan to launch the project during the School Summer Holidays 2020 and to start the weekly sessions in October 2020.
If we dont know who we are, then we are whoever somebody says we are

The ACYCLE programme will allow our children to participate in fun and practical activities to celebrate our rich black historical achievements making it possible for them to connect to and acknowledge their cultural identity.
Children will have the opportunity to learn about the key principles of Kwanzaa, arts and crafts, building inner resilience as well as make their own healthy food plate of African and Caribbean foods which helps to find a sense of identity where it has been lost.
Representation matters. ACYCLE aims to provide various forms of positive representation to help instil a sense of self pride in our features and our heritage.
The most critical benefit will be the time given to listen, support, direct and inspire through music, writing, song, drama and creative media.
Do you want to help your child connect with their African heritage and realise the greatness from which they come ?
