In July students from our school, Sacred Heart, Rye Hills, Bydales and Kirkleatham Hall took part in a unique Trust event looking at Social Justice. The event was hosted over two sites: Bydales and Redcar Academy. At RCC, the Humanities and Science faculties collaborated to provide a fabulous set of learning experiences for all of the students involved.
Students took part in a range of activities from making solar ovens and using them to make rice crispy cakes – inspired by our links with Uganda; a trading activity to explore global inequality; and a game to calculate how many earths are needed to support our way of life![singlepic id=1267 w=320 h=240 float=right]
Here is what some of the students and staff involved had to say about the day:
“I really enjoyed the solar ovens. The cakes were really nice and very yummy. Thanks very much. I really enjoyed myself.” – Charlotte, Ryehills
“Great session with diverse activities that were accessible for the whole age range – Year 10s were as enthusiastic as the Year 7s. Delivery was very enthusiastic and genuine – which was evident to all students and was infectious. A good day!” – Mr Stockwell, Ryehills[singlepic id=1268 w=320 h=240 float=left]
“I really enjoyed today. We made solar cookers and did a fair trade selling activity. I also met lots of new people and had lots of fun.” – Joseph, Sacred Heart
“I’ve enjoyed today. I have learnt that every day we all, without knowing or meaning to, play a part in global warming and that farmers receive more in fair trade than farmers not in fair trade.” – Tekeila, Ryehills
