Determined to support schools with the levels of student engagement, New Paradigm Education like to be able to offer keynote talks to schools to help with the process of informing and inspiring their student bodies. Offering an assembly can serve as a great first point of contact between our organisations and we can quickly demonstrate our ability to enthuse young people on practically any topic, we are particularly adept at broaching sensitive subjects that could be tricky for head teachers to tackle.
We have received donations specifically to support the provision of these events so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. The Chris Nicholson Fund was established in honour of a teacher who inspired literally hundreds of thousands of students during his career. This enigmatic teacher perfectly modelled how unforgettable assemblies can become a critical aspect of the pastoral element of education, a vital moment in the personal development of a young person. Chris Nicholson will always be remembered for his ability to enthral a group of students three times per week and engage the hearts and minds of all the young people he came into contact with, forever synonymous with the words Tacit Agreement and the dramatic unpacking of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 with which he offered countless young minds a definitive illustration of the enduring nature of true love.
In honour of this great man, we wish to enable more students to gain exposure to this kind of inspirational delivery, we use this fund in order to be able to pay some of the expenses incurred delivering assemblies in schools around the country. We invite donations to the Chris Nicholson Fund from anyone who would like to support New Paradigm Education in taking these assemblies to schools and community groups who may not otherwise be able to have exposure to this kind of inspirational presentation.
