On March 31st, the grade 5 and 6 students were visited by Eva Kuper. As a holocaust survivor, she shared with the students her many stories, and how perseverance, trust and hope allowed her to endure the ordeal.
What are human rights? What is non-discrimination? What are the steps of peaceful conflict resolution? Why is it important to know and talk about these issues?
These are just a few of the various questions that the students at Pierre de Coubertin Day Care have been tackling afterschool in their weekly Play it Fair! sessions. Play it Fair! is an educational toolkit developed by Equitas to promote human rights values in children aged 6-12 years old. Every week at Pierre de Coubertin, a different value is introduced.
The ideas, feelings, experiences, and possible solutions that are expressed and shared by the students at Pierre de Coubertin during each discussion have been absolutely illuminating.
