Year 11 iWeek
Year 11 have been focusing on the real world during this iWeek and they are tackling some heavy topics such as:
- Different models for society and the tensions between them
- Migration and immigration
- Extremism and fundamentalism
- Cultural practises and the law – forced marriage and honour based violence
- Financial literacy
- Pornography vs real sex
So far there have been some excellent discussions and debates about these topics, with all pupils understanding the serious nature of the work.
Today we had a guest speaker, BBC journalist, Poonam Taneja. On Friday there will be a return visit by Janine Webber, a holocaust survivor.
