‘If we worked together then the world wouldn’t have any more wars’, students at Lancashire school get to the heart of SolidariTEA campaign
We had a lovely SolidariTEA event, it was held on Thursday 16th December in our school Library.
The aim of the event was to raise awareness of the idea that we can achieve so much when we work together.
The day was a bit of a combination event. As part of our year 9 active citizenship, the pupils organised the event and focused it on things that we can achieve, e.g. saving endangered tigers and elephants. It was also the launch of our school’s eco-council. We had tea and biscuits for people to enjoy and some questions for them to think about:
1) What could we save together?
Responses: saving endangered animals, rainforests, environment the world!
2) How can we join together around the world
Responses: making a big commitment and people signing it around the world, holding events in each continent and make it fun, hold meetings, listening to less fortunate – not just the rich
3) Why is it important for the world to work together?
Responses: the world would be a better place if everyone worked together regardless of religion, race or gender, the more people there are the easier it will be to save things.
4) What could we achieve if we worked together?
Responses: if we worked together then the world wouldn’t have any more wars, a better place to live, world peace,
The event really made pupils think about the importance of community cohesion and how we need to work together with everyone in order to make the world a better place. The day will be followed up with lessons about working together and community cohesion amongst faiths. It also complements our RE and Citizenship curriculum, where the pupils study about how it is important for faiths to work together to make a change.
