A GROUP of Wigan school children were taught how to achieve their dreams this week.

As part of an ongoing project, Honda School of Dreams, in association with schools across the borough, delivered lessons to help pupils achieve their goals.

Gordons Honda spent two days at St John Fisher High School delivering a workshop for nine to 13-year-olds and the teachers joined in too.

The School of Dreams programme helps young people to understand the importance of pursuing their dreams and teaches skills and strategies to help turn their dreams into reality.

It was developed by Honda (UK) and a team of independent education experts as part of Honda’s commitment to giving back to the local communities in which it operates.

School of Dreams helps students and educators discover different, creative and fun ways to learn.

Paul Sharp, Dealer Principal at Gordons Honda, said: “It is great to support the workshop in our local school. To help children understand they can turn their dreams into reality by learning to use strategies in their early lives will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the local community.

“We believe children and young adults deserve all the help they can get.”

For the last three years School of Dreams has been delivered in more than 100 schools across the UK, directly engaging around 5,000 students and teachers.

During the course of the two days pupils are taught communication, leadership and change management skills to name a few and at the end of the day give a presentation about what they’ve learnt.

A spokesman for Honda in Wigan said: “The workshop is challenging but great fun, teachers and pupils work at the same level in small groups learning how to turn their dreams into reality.

“They learn from real life examples of people who have achieved their dreams in life and also get the chance to develop new skills such as juggling.
