The Beauty Bus Stops in Elmbridge
North East Surrey Short Stay School, based is Molesey Road, Hersham, provides sixty full time places for permanently excluded pupils or pupils who are at risk of a permanent exclusion from mainstream schools. NESSSS offers a range of accredited courses, in a supportive environment, to help boost the achievements of these students who often have poor body image and low self-confidence.
The school requested our support for their ‘Beauty Bus’ scheme for girls, giving them a taster of experiencing what a career in beauty therapy would be like. The beauty sessions are run by a qualified beauty therapist and the school reports that not only has this had a significant positive impact on team-building but also, more importantly, on the girls’ self-confidence improvement and on their body images.
As a result of taking part in the ‘Beauty Bus’ sessions, one of the girls has been accepted for a place on a hair and beauty course at a local college.
This project is just one of many that Walton Charity currently supports to bring the widest possible range of educational experiences to young people in Elmbridge. For further information see https://www.waltoncharity.org.uk/grants-community
