Year 10 students had the opportunity to attend workshops and discuss key social justice issues at their Social Justice Day held at Oxford Falls. Even though there was a range of different topics as one student stated they realised “we all share the same principles and concepts; even though we may live in different parts of the world, practise different religions or come from different backgrounds.”

Meg Renfrew and Natasha Hassall both from St Peter’s Catholic College, Tuggerah, commented “one of the most shocking parts of the day was finding out the amount of children in detention centres and the effect that it has on them.  It inspired many of us to want to do something about it, sharing ideas of what we could do to make a difference.”

They also felt “it was an amazing experience sitting with a group of people who were just as passionate as each other and at the end of the day we were left with questions to contemplate, namely: How invested in Social Justice are you? What change do you want to see in the world?”
