Kat read some of her inspirational poems including Hey Black Child and Still I Rise, before our girls worked in teams to create their own poems, which they then had the chance to perform.

For our girls it was a chance to focus on their literacy and teamwork skills as well as developing their confidence as performers. Thanks to Kat for such an amazing workshop.
