REGISTER YOUR SCHOOL FOR SHOW AND TELL SERIES No.2
Show and Tell is designed to seamlessly fit into your school’s curriculum, we even offer live Cisco Webex feedback sessions to bring ideas to life in the classroom. A completely flexible and accessible programme inviting all students and teachers to join in.
Whether you run the workshops as a GCSE or A-Level creative subject session, an after-school club, a lunchtime activity or a separate PSHE project to highlight World Mental Health Day, we want you to be involved.
“I started working with my classes and small groups before promoting this on a whole school basis. I shared the videos with other faculties who use them as a conversation starter. This not only encourages pupils to start talking about Mental Health but it is improving pupil’s confidence, communication skills and understanding”.
Lisa M Ward, Maesteg School

Photography Workshop Films
Our photography workshop films are freely available to all schools and youth clubs. With the guidance of professional photographers and therapeutic photography experts, the films teach the positive link between photography and mental health. Each workshop is accompanied with a task that will encourage the practice of photography as a mindful technique.
To assist your students with the workshop series, we’ve created an easy to follow how-to guide, download here.
Live Feedback Sessions
To prepare your students for their final #My Photo My Feeling exhibition submissions, workshop films 5-8 were each accompanied by a live feedback session. Hosted exclusively for schools, the Cisco Webex sessions connected students in the classroom directly with our superstar photographers for expert tips and guidance to improve their mindful photography skills.

“Having the motivation of working towards an exhibition was a really important factor. The students are keen to improve on their work, they were thrilled to be featured in the feedback videos and worked hard to create work that might be considered for the exhibition”.
Green School for Boys
“Our students greatly benefited from hearing directly from the testimonies of photographers working within the complex subject of mental health and this really set them free to embark on discovering their own voices and enabled them to realise the value of visualising their own feelings and gave them a platform to voice their own opinions. We were overwhelmed with their submissions that they all created in their own time.”
Marina Nimmo, London School of Excellence Tottenham
“I firmly believe that as a pastoral lead it is my duty to ensure that every child feels happy and safe in school. The Show and Tell Project has given me an excellent platform to encourage pupils to express themselves through imagery. I started it with my classes and small groups before promoting Show and Tell on a whole school basis”
Lisa Ward, teacher at Maesteg School
“Selecting meaningful images, choosing their word and mind mapping – have been rewarding activities for them which have enabled them to work in the classroom as well as at home. Photography is wonderful at this age; and in doing something which is different, relaxing, gentle and individual compared to other areas of school – win win for me!”
Robin Warren, head teacher at Primrose Hill Primary School
