This morning’s discussion, led by Assistant Principal, Mr. Bishop, focused on equality and perspective. Years 7 and 8 were shown an interesting video that compressed the world’s population into 100 people – and then showed what they would have. They looked at how many – and how few - people have shelter, water, education, and even, internet.
It was an opportunity for our students to reflect on how fortunate we are, and to look at what we can do to help. Click here for this interesting video.
