Year 11 Spirituality, Religion and Meaning – Guest Speakers on Social Justice.
Year 11 Spirituality, Religion and Meaning
Guest Speakers on Social Justice
In Term 2/3 the Year 11 Spirituality, Religion, and Meaning students have had a transformative journey as they embarked on a deep exploration of social awareness and justice. With a commitment to understanding some of the major social issues impacting our society, they delved into an array of pressing social justice issues that impact our country and local communities. They had several intriguing dialogues with a series of guest speakers, including Clare Peterson, Gaby Kinsman, Isabel Salter, Tammy Rees and Louise Miller- Frost MP. From these guest speakers, the Year 11s have been gifted with invaluable insights that ignite their passion for this integral learning and activism. In response, the students have produced individual investigative studies with a focus on challenging some specific social issues, linking to Catholic Social Teachings and fostering empathy and compassion. They determined some of the steps we need to take towards positive change and a brighter future for all.
