Exploring ways to tackle Social Injustice

Year 9 students visited the University of Wolverhampton and attended a Social Injustice Conference. The theme for the day was to explore the social injustice that many people in the UK experience. Homelessness and food-banks are two of the symptoms of social injustice and were the focus of the event. HTA students worked with other schools from across the Black Country and took part in workshops led by academics and researchers from the University of Wolverhampton. The day was a great opportunity, not only to see what life is like at University, but also the chance to explore social injustice from the viewpoint of different academic disciplines and recognise what they can do to help solve such serious issues, particularly at a time when deciding on their ‘Higher Education’ journey.
