Welcome to our June newsletter.
We are delighted to spring into summer with the news that Nova recently received the 2024 Young K&C Award for Best Work Supporting Training and Education for young people. We’re extremely proud of this achievement, as it's a testament to the dedication and hard work of our Family Programme team (pictured below) and shows how our services are valued by those we work with.
Creating the circumstances through which people of all ages can explore and work towards their potential is at the heart of what Nova does. Education is key to that. Our popular children’s after-school online classes, launched at lightning speed during the first Covid-19 lockdown, saw two slightly perplexed tutors grappling with something alien called Zoom. Since then, the online classes have grown to cover science, maths, and English, reaching over 200 children a year across primary and secondary school ages. However, our education offering doesn’t stop at the school gates (or computer screens). Long-standing partnerships with Imperial College, MAMA.codes, London’s world-class museums, theatres, and galleries, to mention just a few of the brilliant organisations and individuals we’ve worked with, offer invaluable opportunities for our young people to explore and learn about the world through cutting-edge science and technology, lived history, art, and culture in an inclusive and enriching way.

Future leaders create for peace 
Let them lead the way
We launched our 2024/25 North Kensington Youth Group by entering an international art competition with the International Women's Peace Group. The theme of the competition was: 
Conveying a heart of peace to friends suffering from war.
The artworks will be sent to Korea to be judged against entries from all other participating countries. 
We wish them all the best of luck!
