Year 9’s Response to Prejudice

Each year, the department of Religious Studies runs a house competition for Year 9 in which students are to create anything they like, to express their response to an issue related to prejudice. Head of Department, Rebecca Lothian, details this as one of the many highlights of the RS calendar at CHS.

“From canvasses to songs, fashion items to TV sets and soft furnishings to footballs, over the years the imagination of our students has known no limits!”

This year was no different as the staff in the Religious Studies department were blown away by the effort put into every piece of work, and the vast array of heartfelt responses to the issues that matter most to students.

An especial “well done” to the winner(s) from each class, which were decided by their classmates’ votes, as well as their teacher.

In particular, congratulations to Jasmine Fraser-Fletch, of Clarke house, who was the overall year group winner! Jasmine created a beautiful and deeply impactful dance piece which moved everyone.

“On behalf of the RS staff, well done, Year 9. Your hard work led to exceptional achievements and provided a real boost to us all- thank you.”
