Year 12 students, led by Kai Noppen (Year 13), organised workshops to raise awareness of the four key advocacy priorities in Secondary School.
In the Quality Education workshop, students had to separate into two groups and create an origami, however only one of the groups had the instructions, the other one did not. At the end of the activity, students were invited to reflect on what makes a quality education.
In the Climate Action workshop, students had to answer questions about Climate Action and then throw water bottles/paper/cans into a choice of 3 bins according to the answer they thought was correct (a,b,c). Once thrown into the correct bin the team that gets the correct answer wins house points. With this activity, students had to think about what little everyday gestures they can do to help the environment.
In the Zero Hunger workshop, students participated in a Kahoot Quiz to test their knowledge on the topic and learn more about the problem of Hunger in the world but moreover to learn what can be done to help at a local and global level.
In the Gender Equality workshop, students had to participate in a pay gap simulation. The groups were divided into “boys” and “girls” independently of their gender, then had to perform an obstacle course and answer trivia questions. After that, “boys” were given “double the money”(bean bags) for completing the course. At the end of the activity students were invited to reflect on what gender equality is.
At the end of the event, each participant was invited to write what they had learnt.
