Group members presented their Citizenship roadshow in Shaftesbury
Last week, fresh from attending the Citizenship Conference at South Wilts, group members took the Amnesty presentation on the road to a new venue to us, St. Mary’s Girls School at Shaftesbury, as part of their series of talks by local and national organisations. Despite an attendance of some 90 sixth-formers, it was possible to encourage interactivity, and the students proved very knowledgeable and interested in our work, and showed an encouraging level of social awareness. Nearly all signed greetings cards for prisoners, and some stayed to continue conversations with us about Amnesty after the event. Thanks are due to the school for an event we hope we can repeat in the future.
If any secondary school in the South Wiltshire area would like the team to do a presentation on the work of Amnesty and human rights, please get in touch via this site.
