Palestine -Israeli Conflict Workshop
KHS embarked on a series of lessons for students by working with the Charity 'Solutions Not Sides' which Brent Local Authority is now working with to support schools to address the teaching of this protracted conflict. The first step was to work with a group of Year 10s and Year 12s in two 2-hour workshops where students learned about the history of the conflict and also had a chance to listen to a Palestinian and an Israeli speaker. Lots of great questions were posed by students in both year groups in a lengthy Question and Answer session. We now intend to build the conflict into our curriculum so that students get an opportunity to explore the issues on both sides and have a chance to find out more, express their views as well as ask lots of questions.
