Humanitarian Day at NHEHS
To help increase awareness of Human Rights Day last week, our Year 9 Humanitarian Leads devised a number of activities and a display in the atrium.
They wrote a Kahoot quiz which was played in form time and learned to play John Lennon’s “Imagine” in orchestra. Three of the leaders carried out a sponsored silence for a humanitarian charity in recognition of those who do not have freedom of speech. There was also a competition with prizes for Years 7-9 to recite as many of the articles on the Declaration of Human Rights as they could remember!
Our Amnesty Youth Group also participated in the activities and are raising money for Amnesty’s ‘Families Together’ Campaign, putting pressure on the UK government to change the law, to allow child refugees in the UK to have the automatic right to be reunited in the UK with their parents. The group are taking part in the Capital Ring Walk for Amnesty and want to encourage as many staff and students to sign up to cover the various sections of the walk (15 sections in total). Their plan is to raise £2,000 and walk the final leg together in March 2021.
