Team Mintridge paid a visit to Abingdon School for a wonderful afternoon with Patrick Foster, to talk all about Patrick’s journey through life so far and to share some very important messages that would hopefully help the young men in the room in their own lives.
It was a great afternoon for the students at Abingdon School to hear Patrick’s story, as he was once in a very similar position to the young men in the room and it was incredibly insightful for them to listen to someone who had experienced a very similar school life to them.
As Patrick progressed through his presentation, it was important for the students to hear how Patrick had found strength in sharing his problems and how sharing these problems could have solved a lot more, relieved a lot of pressure and helped with numerous challenges earlier in his life.
With his story, Patrick highlighted that it was ok not to be ok and that sharing your problems is not a weakness but more of a strength, which is a big focus for the staff and students at Abingdon School.
Patrick has a very unique story and is happy to share this to help the future lives of young people across the country.
If you would like to see any of the photos from our afternoon at Abingdon School, please contact the staff at the school.
We look forward to working with the staff and students at Abingdon School again in the future.
