A series of workshops to Year 7 children
IMPACT The following impact assessment statement was provided by the teacher at JCoSS who coordinated the project –
Learning from the Righteous delivered a total of eight sessions with all of our year 7’s through the Informal Jewish Education curriculum discussing the significance of the story of Polish Righteous Among the Nations Irena Sendler. In total these sessions were attended by 240 children. Each lesson was incredible and the feedback from the students was fantastic! The charity’s Chief Education Consultant, Antony Lishak, engaged the students with high quality programming and a sincere passion for the subject. His experience and dedication made these sessions a memorable experience for all students, and the accompanying teachers, who learnt as much from the input as the children! The sessions were supported by a number of resources and tools that actively engaged the students in enabling them to confidently understand Irena Sendler’s story, and to reflect upon the strong ethical dilemmas that many faced during that time. Most poignantly the sessions stimulated much reflective discussion, demonstrating that the impact of the experience on the students will be long and lasting. We look forward to collating the children’s responses into a publication that will be shared with the wider JCoSS community.
A massive thank you from everyone at the school!
