Hate Crime Awareness

Hate Crime Awareness

Local policeman, PC Turner Moore, recently arranged a Hate Crime workshop for students in Years 8. The workshop explained what hate crime is, its effect on people’s lives, what constitutes a Hate Crime offence and how to report it. The students heard from guest speakers who had been victims of Hate Crime. The workshop also explored the stories of refugees. This helped to develop an understanding of the experience they may have had that has led them to become a refugee.  Year 8 students commented that they felt the workshop was really useful as these sorts crimes have such awful effects on people and are increasing and there are so many refugees in the world at the moment.  Following the workshop students will have the opportunity to enter a Holocaust Memorial Day competition to be judged in January at Truro Cathedral and will complete their entries in their Ethics lessons. Last year, our Year 8’s won a prize in this competition, so come on Year 8 and good luck for some more winning entries this year!
