GBA Actioneers 2019/20

GBA Actioneers has grown and grown since its introduction in 2016!  It is a time when pupils are given the opportunity to ask questions, reflect on things happening elsewhere in the world, explore their own values and the values of others and develop a knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live.

There was a lot of discussion about how it depended on what the consequences were for not accepting help.  There are times when people want to be independent and not accept help and that decision does not impact on others, whereas, if your refusal for help has negative consequences for others - it is wrong to say no.

 

'Depending on the situation, we need to help people in a crisis because they may be in danger.  If it's like picking up a pencil you can let people get on with it themselves and be resilient.  But people may need help with problems like the rain forest  burning since that takes 20% of all of our oxygen.'

We discussed how Martin Luther King was campaigning for equality and watched his famous speech 'I have a dream'.  We agreed that the main message in his speech was:

 

'I have a dream is the world famous speech by Martin Luther King . His aim was equality for all black and white.  Even if their skin is a different colour they should have freedom.' 

Like Article 2 in RRSA includes all children regardless of race, sex, beliefs etc.'
