Today we held our annual One World Day. The event embodies the spirit of the Carmel Community and helps us think about how we can all make a difference in the world.
Our students attended workshops on many different aspects of this year’s theme – “Peace through mutual understanding”. It was fantastic to see so many organisations and visitors come into college to support this event yet again. Visitors included; Author, Shaun Atwood, PJ Smith, former student, Ben Hodge, and more. Also, representatives from the Yellow House charity, Willowbrook Hospice, Teardrops and other charities came to speak to our students.
One World Week is a time for people in their communities to learn something new about their fellow humans. This includes the planet they inhabit. It is not a fund-raising event, but an awareness-raising exercise, intended to broaden our perspectives on life and to keep us informed.
Feedback from students has been overwhelmingly positive. We are extremely grateful to all our visitors for adding to our students’ education in its widest sense. It was a very informative and enjoyable day.
