Solidarity Week
The College is proud to announce the commencement of an annual Solidarity Week, this year’s week occurred in Week 8 of this Term.

Solidarity week was and is not just a series of events; it is a powerful opportunity for us to come together as a community, to learn, reflect, and take steps toward making a meaningful difference in the world.

This year, our theme was “Walking in Solidarity with those who have been impacted by war.” War is not just a distant concept seen in movies or read about in history books; it is a harsh reality that affects millions of lives around the globe. Families are torn apart, communities are destroyed, and the echoes of conflict resonate long after the fighting has ceased. It’s easy to feel detached from these realities, but during the week, we aim to bridge that gap through understanding and empathy.

Throughout Solidarity Week, students engaged in a series of carefully curated activities designed to foster a deep sense of empathy and solidarity with those who have experienced the devastations of war. Each day, our daily notices included empathy-building tasks and discussion starters, encouraging us to think critically about the impact of conflict and how we can support those affected.

In addition, a dedicated Religion lesson delved deeper into this year’s theme, offering activities that challenge us to reflect on our values and the role we can play in supporting peace and reconciliation efforts. This lesson was an opportunity for each student to explore their capacity for compassion and empathy.

The culmination of the week’s efforts was a whole school assembly, where students and staff came together to listen to stories, messages, and calls to action. This assembly not only highlighted the experiences of those impacted by war, but also asked our College Community to consider the steps required to take to stand in solidarity with those impacted by conflict.

Solidarity Week is more than just an event; it’s a commitment to understanding, a pledge to empathy, and a step towards action. It is a powerful reminder that, despite our differences, we share a common humanity. By participating in these activities, we are not only raising awareness but also laying the groundwork for a more empathetic and compassionate world.

Continuing into the future, let us embrace this week with open hearts and minds. Let us listen, learn, and act. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we walk in solidarity.
