for­mer pri­mary teach­ers from Rossendale have been vis­it­ing schools across the val­ley de­liv­er­ing as­sem­bly work­shops on the prin­ci­ples of Growth Mind­set.

Gemma Sanchez from Water­foot and Liz Cronshaw from Bury have joined forces to be­come Grow Your Mind­set, an ed­u­ca­tional and cor­po­rate busi­ness help­ing to pro­mote the the­o­ries de­vised by Stan­ford Univer­sity pro­fes­sor Carol Dweck.

Gemma said: “Un­der­stand­ing the prin­ci­ples of Growth Mind­set is fun­da­men­tal for all learn­ers, to help them un­lock their po­ten­tial and aim high.

“With to­day’s high pres­sured so­ci­ety and the in­crease of men­tal ill­ness it’s vi­tal we give chil­dren the tools they need in or­der to cope with anx­i­ety, stress and fail­ure.”

Gemma and Liz con­tinue to of­fer free as­sem­bly work­shops to schools in the area and a place can be booked via their web­site www.growyour­mind­
