UNHCR Refugee Simulation for Y9
08:30 Thursday 11 Oct 2018 - 13:00 Thursday 11 Oct 2018
The UNHCR (a UNICEF) organisation will be coming in with Phillipa Tichotova (English teacher at Libus and her contact) to organise a refugee simulation for the Y9 students to help them empathise with the plight of a refugee. This links to the English curriculum as one of our main novels this year is, The Breadwinner about Afghanistan under the Taliban and the author, Deborah Ellis will be coming to school in March and is setting the Global Campus competition. Additionally, the UNHCR ask for the students to somehow feedback to other groups what they have learned etc so could link in with Service Learning.
