Sixth Form students learn about human rights and the work of Amnesty International
We are most grateful to Dr Susan Miller who went above and beyond to ensure our Sixth Form students were able to benefit from her expertise in human rights. The lockdown prevented Dr Miller from visiting college but she very kindly prepared a virtual presentation about what our Human Rights are, why they need protecting and what we as individuals can do to help those whose rights may be violated. A pdf of Dr Miller’s presentation can be viewed HERE. Ms Mannion has saved the in the Year 12 Careers Google Classroom where students can access resources easily and means we are continuing to share information which is vital for personal development for students.
Dr Miller said: “”I do hope you enjoy this presentation about human rights. It is sometimes useful to look up from the day-to-day concerns we all have, especially at the present time, and remind ourselves of some of the big, global issues that are actually so important and relevant to all of us in the longer term. So I hope you find the presentation interesting, but also thought-provoking”
Ms Mannion, Lead Teacher for Careers, said: “”It is so generous of Dr Miller to give up her time to do this so our current Year 12s don’t miss out on this most-important resource and that we look forward to welcoming Dr Miller back to college next year. I know that students always enjoy the talk especially if they are considering Law degrees in the future.”
