Year 7 Homelessness Assembly

On Friday 21st April 2017, Year 7 students attended a special assembly presented by Saleta and Harry from the homeless charity DePaul. Both Saleta and Harry have had the unfortunate experience of being homeless at a young age and now use their experiences to teach students across the country about the causes and effects of becoming homeless.

The aim of the assembly was to highlight the reasons why people - of all backgrounds - find themselves homeless and how they cope with the bad situations they find themselves in. They also gave information about people and organisations those people can turn to in their time of need.

The underlying message of the assembly was that all types of people can find themselves homeless, but there are always people and organisations out there to give you the support and guidance you need to get through it.

In addition, Year 7’s will be embarking upon a local community project this term where they will be researching about issues, such as homelessness, and how they affect their local area.

We hope this assembly was interesting and insightful for our Year 7s.
