Global Education Migration Workshop


On Monday 28th November, Class 3 were visited by Rosina, Jenny and Madhu from the Centre for Global Education.The Centre for Global Education is a charity, based in York, which aims to make a real difference locally, nationally and globally by  ‘EDUCATING FOR A JUST AND SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.'

During the morning, we took part in a workshop which explored issues around migration. We looked at what migration means and examined different push and pull factors.

Madhu then told us her moving, first-hand experience of arriving in Britain from Uganda in 1975. 

In the afternoon, the charity led a session of Philosophy for Children (P4C).We carried out a philosophical enquiry inspired by the book, ‘Tusk Tusk’ by David McKee. We had a lot of good ideas for our enquiry, but decided on the question:

If the grey elephants weren’t racist, why did the big-eared elephants and the little-eared elephants give each other dark looks?

This led on to a discussion about whether there was a difference between discrimination and racism.

The two sessions were fantastic opportunities to explore global issues. The visitors were impressed with our thoughtfulness and compassion, and we really appreciated the time they spent with us.
