Human Utopia with Year 9

Being the change

To demonstrate the importance of respect and responsibility, in this session students took part in a group exercise to evaluate effects of poor relationships and the impact on an individual. This is delivered by an outside agency, Human Utopia.

Once students have experienced success with their own efforts to make positive change, they have a strong desire to become advocates and ambassadors to help younger students and inevitably we receive many applications to join our volunteer programme by becoming a hero. These volunteers then get involved with many events that have a deep and significant impact upon their own personal development but in doing so they make a huge contribution to a better community and society by Being the Change they wish to see in their world.
