Last week Mrs Skingle’s year 7 class participated in a global video-conference with a school in Kuwait. The students were understandably nervous and excited in equal measure. Lots of preparation has taken place to practice good dialogue skills; including how to ask questions for deeper thinking and how to respond to questions articulately and thoughtfully.

Students led very interesting conversations; ranging from how Muslims worship, how the world came about and likes and dislikes in our communities. At one point, students were asked to think about the top three values students would like to see in the world. This led to fabulous dialogue and interesting conversations about the virtues of loyalty, compassion, respect, ambition and humour.

In the final reflection, lots of students from both schools talked about how the video-conference demonstrated that all human beings, no matter where they live in the world or their religious beliefs, we are all the same because we are human. All human beings feel, act and think and this should be celebrated, no matter if they are similar or different to our own values.

A huge well done to 7y2!
