As part of the excellent Christian education we offer our pupils at St. Philip’s, we aim to give our pupils the opportunity to engage in social action and help them to understand how they can challenge injustice. This is called ‘courageous advocacy’. When we use the term ‘courageous advocacy’ we are referring to the act of speaking out against an issue of injustice, often on behalf of those whose voice is not heard. Speaking out, at whatever level this takes place, requires an element (and sometimes a great deal) of courage!
In Spring 2022 we challenged each of our year groups to consider how they could take action to protect the wonderful planet we are lucky enough to live. Our pupils considered the threats to the environment and the action they could take to make a difference.
