Grade 10 Individuals and Societies classes are #StandUp4HumanRights

Grade 10 students have spent the past two months studying human rights and trying to gain a better understanding of each of the rights that are guaranteed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

This week in class they had a mini Human Rights museum. Student groups researched a group that was vulnerable to human rights abuses, explored how we all could stand up for human rights. The presentations were in conjunction with the United Nations Human Rights Day on December 10. Topics included looking at child brides, the war in Syria, LGBTQ+ issues, gun violence, capital punishment and many more.
