Social Justice Conference
27 March 2015
The Salvation Army’s Social Justice Conference was held on the 26th and 27th of March designed by students to equip Year 9 and 10 students with tools to help harness their skills to create positive change in their life and the lives of others.
Over the two days, 200 students participated in social justice skills building, awareness raising workshops, panel discussions and heard from a diverse group of speakers. Exclusively for teachers, we offered professional development sessions in our teachers’ lounge.
In the slide show above you’ll find some of the feedback from student participants. A big thank you to the students, teachers, schools and parents for making the two days a great success!
Below are some quotes from the student evaluation forms:
“It was inspiring and taught me a lot”
“Extremely inclusive of everyone”
“It motivated me to make a difference”
“You showed us real life examples of injustice”
“Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! I have taken so much out of it and will value this experience forever! I am so keen to help out and get involved!”
