Greenfield pupils gain respect with Foundation

9 February 2018

More than 150 County Durham youngsters took part in a special event this week which demonstrated their commitment to raise awareness of racism, disability and to look beyond stereotyping.

Year 7 pupils at Greenfield Community College took part in a ‘Rights Respecting Day’ in which they took part in a series of interactive workshops delivered by Foundation of Light which focused on racism and stereotyping in sport and disability awareness.

The sessions gave them the opportunity to discuss social issues, share their ideas, access information and voice their own opinions with adults and their peers.

The day went really well with Foundation tutors and coaches discussing some really important topics with Greenfield’s Year 7 students. There was a definite buzz around the school as the students took part in a range of interactive workshops.

Awareness days like these are so important as students are really pushed to develop their deeper thinking skills and challenge any negative views or fears that they might have.

The input from the students was amazing and they should be proud of the skills and knowledge they demonstrated during the day.

Amy Jaroszkiewicz, Foundation of Light Education Curriculum Coordinator

‘Rights Respecting Day’ is part of a wider initiative introduced by UNICEF which has its roots in the rights of the child, supporting and encouraging them to be responsible citizens.

“We learned about disabilities we weren’t aware of,” said a Greenland pupil. “The activity where we were blindfolded and had to take directions showed us how difficult it is being visually impaired.”

Alongside Equality and Diversity, other Rights Respecting Days delivered by Foundation of Light cover Mental Health Awareness and Employabilty.

Foundation of Light’s programmes in South Durham are supported by homes and communities organisation, livin.

For more information about Foundation of Light’s in-school delivery, and how it can enhance your curriculum to inspire learning, email aaron.croft@foundationoflight.co.uk or call 0191 5515318.
