Our RESPECT Event took place recently in Coopers’ Hall with lots of Level 2 and Level 3 students, staff and external speakers taking part.
This Level 2 event has come as a result of their hard work during Core Studies, taking part in The RESPECT Project. The purpose of the project and event was for students and staff to work together to create and investigate the theme of ‘respect’ by developing curiosity and opinion in a respectful manner. Students also developed employability skills for future progression (confidence, public speaking, research skills and team work).
The event included: various displays of the Level 2 students' work, respect games (made by Level 2 students), performances by Acting, Dance and Music students, an external speaker. Scenes from our Year 1 BTEC Performing Arts (Acting) focused on topics such as islamophobia, transphobia and homophobia.
In conjunction with this event, we will be fundraising for the charity, 'Mind' (charity no. 219830). Contributions will help Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Mind campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. They won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
Students and staff learnt how to work together to create a cross-college event by effectively showing more respect.
