Matthew
KidsView Social Justice Conference

 

On Friday 7th August, ten Year 8 and 9 Delany students had the opportunity to participate in an engaging social justice conference. KidsView Interschool Social Justice Conference highlighted the challenges facing people living in poverty, particularly in the Philippines.

The students interacted with their peers in workshops held throughout the day.

Our students returned to school recognising their role in the global community and believing in their power to be change makers.

Activities included students being blindfolded, and imagining the world's resources were redistributed. Matthew represented the Delany group, with almost no resources. This activity challenged students to understand the connection between wealth, education and power.

Playing the 'Health Game' gave students the opportunity to discuss the consequences of extreme poverty.  The students adopted the identity of a child based on their wealth status.

Delany students enjoyed collaborating with their peers from other schools and learning about how they can help those who are less fortunate
