For the last school term, year 6 and 7 students from Kilkenny Primary school have had fun taking part in a trial program using the Centre of Democracy as a HASS and Civics and Citizenship resource. We have designed bingo games, democracy walks, quiz’s, and more.
Here is a selection of Slam Poems written by students in a short lesson as part of this trial program.
There’s a kid walking down the street
He looks in a house to a loving family
All he sees are white people, no multicultural families on the street around him
All he can think is why are there not any other families
He can only think of joining a community that makes him feel at home, never not alone
by Jaidon & Zane
Equal right’s some rights
Speak up for another
And have some fun
Make rights equal for everyone
Freedom is for everyone
Vote for your rights
And become one
by Emily, Thejal, Aniqa & Gracie
Don’t think someone is different if they have a different skin colour
Don’t bully someone just if they have a different skin colour
Stop racism, don’t tell bad stuff to other people who are a different race
by Udy & Karamir
We need to reunite to fight for our rights.
We’ll use our voices to make our choices
Human survival is not our rival
by Lucy, Emma, Moya & Lilly
Great work Kilkenny students!
