65 young girls from schools in the South East were over the moon after graduating from the Mosaic Primary School programme at their end of year ceremony held at Royal Holloway University this week.
Attending the graduation ceremony were pupils and mothers from Montem Primary School in Islington, Godolphin Primary School in Slough, Sythwood Primary School and New Monument Primary School in Woking,
Mosaic would like to thank Criterion Capital and the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery for their generous support of the primary school mentoring programme.
ITV News producer and Mosaic mentor Roohi Hasan was an inspirational guest speaker at the event and was humbled by the achievements of the young graduates. Roohi started as a mentor five years ago, first at primary then secondary school level, as well as speaking at and compering community events.
Roohi said: “I was invited to be keynote speaker at the Mosaic South East Graduation with the hope of inspiring the young girls, I ended up being the one inspired by the great presentations the girls gave. If anyone needs testament of the incredible impact Mosaic’s primary schools mentoring programme has on these girls then the content of these presentations and the confidence with which they delivered them is more than enough evidence, as one girl so articulately put- before Mosaic she was too scared to even raise her hand in class and now she has real confidence.”
Zohra Malik, a student at Montem Primary School said: “The Mosaic programme has definitely inspired mine and my families’ views to fulfil my dreams. It’s a great platform to inspire women to be successful in their lives.”
Kalsoom Singh, a teacher at Godolphin Primary School said: “The programme has had such a big impact on boosting the confidence of the girls and mums.”
