StreetLaw HAPs Challenge!
10th March 2018
Yesterday saw the return of StreetLaw to FHS HAPs Challenge. The group have been delivering one class per academic year, to our HAPs, for several years now and it is always a favourite! This year was no exception, with the pupils thoroughly enjoying the session.
Children's Rights and Law was the focus: pupils discussed various scenarios, deciding on whether they actually breached the rights of the child involved. Responses were well considered and our visitors, University of Liverpool law undergraduates, were impressed! However, the highlight of the session had to be the final debate - groups arguing that a particular article was more important than others. The quality of argument and challenge was amazing; all pupils were keen to present their reasons and at times, the debate was heated (to put it mildly!). Unfortunately, at 4.15pm on a Friday afternoon, we had to bring an end to the session and didn't quite get to close the debate.
It was so lovely to see our HAPs working in mixed age groups and also, to witness some of our new faces (Year 7 HAPs) contribute with confidence. We realise we are very fortunate to have these sessions and thank StreetLaw and our undergraduate visitors, once again, for providing us with the opportunity.
