As part of the expedition Get Up Stand Up students wrote a speech on one of the following topics, The right to an Education, The right to not be discriminated against and The right to be protected from conflict and cruelty. Students then selected a one minute segment of their speech which they then performed in front of a live audience which consisted of their parents.
Here’s Azriel and Anthony’s speeches.
All year 8 students will be taking part in celebrations of learning next week:
