‘Everyone doesn’t have to be the same as someone else’ Manorvale PS

 

Despite the crazy weather our Sisters and Brothers at Manorvale Primary School gave their best efforts in performing, listening, reflecting and having fun!

We introduced the ‘triangle’ which comprises 3 different roles that people can take in any situation but especially when we see racism happening. There is the person or people responsible, the target and the witness/es.

Kids valued the experience of role playing different situations in a safe space that allowed them to walk in someone else’s shoes:

  • ‘I like the role plays cos it made me feel what it was like for the person being discriminated against’
  • ‘I liked the acting, it made me feel like I could be anyway I wanted’
  • I learnt about being a bystander-it means standing up for the target and saying stop!’

Through games and discussion we felt that kids understood the value of diversity and what it can offer them:

  • ‘I like that people have different views and opinions on different things’

We heard some great stories about kids visiting their friends’ houses and trying new foods. Hopefully we get to try this yummy food that people are talking about!
