Be-Dazzled is an after school club run in one of the primary schools in Dawlish and is for any child from year 3-6.

It is a welcoming and inclusive space. ‘Be-Dazzled’ is a safe space that provides help or sign posting for those who may have need.

This type of group mentoring gives young people the opportunity to meet in small groups for interactive group mentoring sessions. Sessions focus on sharing stories from everyday life at school and at home, goal-setting, engaging with the school and their values and social opportunities, decision making, and healthy life choices and activities.

We currently meet once a week and have fun discovering how to overcome obstacles and reach goals. We share inspiring stories and have discussions in a fun and trusting environment. Food is always provided as people of all ages open up to one another in the context of food.

We aim to help our ‘Be-Dazzled’ students feel more connected and empowered at school and have greater access to opportunities in the community.

The topic we were focusing on were about Responsibility. The photos below show the young people at Be-dazzled making towers out of newspaper to support a raw egg on the top.
