On Tuesday, 10th November Years 8, 9 and 10 all took part in workshops against discrimination, racism and bullying via our Teams connection.
The workshop was really well received by the pupils. This interactive workshop helped to educate our pupils about tolerance and social responsibility. It also gave them the skills to counter discrimination whilst safeguarding their personal safety, in line with the Equality Act (2010) and British Values.
Year 10 pupils found the workshop very informative and useful. They learnt a lot about stereotypes, why people discriminate and what they can do if happens to them or someone they know.
Year 9 pupils Kaira and Amyrah both said they really enjoyed the workshop. They found it very factual and interesting.
“The presenters organised lots of different activities, which helped us to understand more about stereotypes, how people are judged wrongly and why it happens. Even though we learn about some of this in school, in the workshops we heard about real life situations that had happened to other people.”
Year 8 pupils took part in an anti- bullying workshop, which was predominately about racism. They learnt why it happens, the difference between different types of bullying and how to deal with it.
This workshop provided lots of examples of situations people have to deal with in real life and how sad it can be. Should any Park School pupils find themselves in similar situations, the workshop has equipped them with skills and attributes which will help them cope.
This workshop was part of the PSHEC curriculum linking with Black History Month and Anti-bullying Week 2020
