Our MYP Students are participating in homeroom lessons that promote understanding in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests in the US and across the globe.
As a culturally diverse community, we are focusing on key understanding of discrimination among groups oppressed; subject to violence and injustice. Our discussions have prompted some to attend local protests and find ways to educate and speak out for human rights.
Sára joined members of her Grade 10 class to create short films for the current performing arts unit, Theatre for Change. Her particular film combined her own spoken word poetry with images of the Black Lives Matter protests. She has also attended recent protests in Mannheim.
These contributions follow our H.I.S. Guiding Statements; embracing diversity and demonstrating respect while connecting locally to promote peaceful, sustainable action against racism.
We applaud our students who have asked the hard questions, spoken up for the rights of all individuals and are recognising the parts of our greater society that needs to change in order for there to be true diversity and justice.
