Our logo symbolises that we are all pieces of the same jigsaw. It also symbolises that we must all co-operate and join together. Lastly it shows that global issues should be at the forefront of our minds.
To ensure that young people become better informed about global issues. To develop and nurture positive and effective action amongst young people.

WE WANT TO WORK TOGETHER TO ENSURE THAT PALESTINIANS ARE GRANTED EQUALITY AND THAT THEY TOO ARE GUARANTEED THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS UNDER THE TERMS OF THE UNDHR.
We used schoolsacrossborders.org to explore many resources. Some of these resources were about our topic whilst others dealt directly with the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis. We invited speakers to come and talk to us about their work in places like the Gaza Strip.
Israeli settlement policy constitutes a continuing breach of international law. The settlements violate the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination. Violence against Palestinian people and property is on the rise and needs to end. Action is needed to lift the continuing blockade of the Gaza Strip.
We gave presentations that taught about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and how it affects people today. We gave short presentations about how Mount Temple encourages global citizenship in TY- we spoke about Schools Across Borders, our Ghana trip, YSI and our local volunteering programmes.
We played games to reinforce the learning and held a table quiz with prizes. We had two art stations where we asked pupils to use art as a medium to communicate how they felt about global citizenship and the topics they had learned about.
