Why is Citizenship important?

Citizenship helps young people to play an effective role in public life. They learn about rights, responsibilities, the law and democracy.
It encourages respect for people of all nationalities, religions and ethnic identities.

Citizenship aims to give young people a voice with which they can change their world in an appropriate way.

Year 10 Citizenship

As part of their project on Sustainable Development, Year 10 students conducted some research on Bottled Water. They did a taste test, inviting students to see if they could tell the difference between bottled water and tap water.

Turns out most people thought the tap water tasted better.

Nice to see staff getting involved as well.

Good job Year 10!
