All a school has to supply is the teacher and some paper and art materials.
It is around the concept of installing an inner cheerleader - that little voice everyone has inside them, encouraging you to keep going even when life gets a bit overwhelming.
Each day focuses on a different power for the children to develop.
The week culminates in a class activity that involves students working together to create a Class Cheerleader. Each student decides which power or feature they like best from the inner cheerleader they created for themselves on Day 1 and adds it to the Class Cheerleader to create a single, quite strange looking, creature. We are encouraging schools to send us a photo of their Class Cheerleader to enter into our competition. Ten winners will have their Class Cheerleader turned into a soft toy for the school to use in mental wellbeing activities.
