St. David’s students explore thorny issue of justice, and injustice, in the modern world
LAST OCTOBER, 20 transition year students from St. David's Secondary School undertook a 10-week Justice Module in co-operation with Two Coats.
The primary purpose of the module was to introduce students to the wide range of complex issues associated with justice in our world today whether in far-flung communities or here at home.
The students explored issues such as poverty, the power of education and the terrible consequences when it is denied to young people especially young women , inequality, social exclusion, sexual exploitation, health and freedom of expression.
The transition year students made presentations to other students in the school helping to increase awareness of the justice issues and the responsibility each and every one of us has to respond to the needs of those who are oppressed, isolated and voiceless.
The students also decided to have a
‘no uniform' day and raised nearly €400 for the education of the blind children in Kullu, India – a Two Coats supported project. Two Coats will match this fund and this will guarantee an on-going education for many children.
‘A big Thank You from all of us in two coats to the transition year students and their teacher, Miriam Kane,' said Paul Dillon of the initiative.
