Empowering young people through safe space in the classroom

Emotions have run high in the past two months as British teenagers who feel a sense of identification with, or sympathy for, the people of Palestine or Israel have naturally needed to respond to the intense emotions they are experiencing. How can schools provide the support and empowerment that these students need?

Community People - the ACT Building Resilience Project

Community People

Nick Hills, Head of Citizenship, led work on The ACT Building Resilience Project at the Anglo European School in Essex.

This project focused on critical thinking, problem solving and enquiry skills, and taking informed and responsible actions through five Citizenship lessons with Year 7 pupils. Pupils developed understanding of the concept of community, explored diverse viewpoints and learned why some people hold extreme opinions and undertake terrorist acts.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) has taken place in the UK since 2001, with a UK event and over 2,000 local activities taking place on or around 27 January each year. This date marks the liberation in 1945 of Auschwitz death camp in Poland from Nazi forces by Russian forces  in the final months of the Second World War. The UK played a leading role in establishing HMD as an international day of commemoration in 2000, when 46 governments signed the Stockholm Declaration.
