Some GCSE Religious classes are working on the Is it Fair unit of their course and have been studying Prejudice and Discrimination, looking at the life and speeches of Martin Luther King. They also looked at how President Obama uses similar techniques in his speeches.
From this, inspired by the speech made by Bobby Kennedy on Martin Luther King’s death pupils wrote their own speech called “Reaching to Dream”. There are both audio recordings and pupil presentation of their speeches here, which show insightful views on how our pupils view the world and their hopes and dreams for the future of humanity.
This work really encompasses one of our Christian Values, compassion as it shows the depth of concern our pupils have the people who share this world with us.
