Heideveld High, Y2K College and Vista High: The Scalabrini Screening

This past Friday, 21 August, Street Talk in collaboration with STEPS, together with NGO Scalabrini, as part of a facilitated screening project – hosted a very special screening with three different high schools – including Heideveld High, Vista High and Y2K College, all participating in the Scalabrini Unite as One Club Programme.

The Unite as One Club Programme aims to work with groups of grade 10- 12 learners from high schools in the Western Cape area, in order to engage in discussions around cultural diversity, stereotyping, xenophobia, and human rights. Club members plan and lead celebrations on key days such as Human Rights day, World Refugee Day, Youth Day, National Women’s Day or Heritage Day, and thus engage an additional 200 learners from their schools.

The programme also includes a strong focus on both leadership and activism, providing learners with the skills to identify problems within their communities and use effective activism tools to attempt to solve these problems. Educators and community leaders will be encouraged to participate in these discussions and in the action of resolving the issues.

The Unite as One Club plays an important part in the lives of the learners who participate, as the issues and topics discussed in the club programme are aimed at increasing their understanding of human rights issues and teach critical thinking, leadership and project management skills.

The learners will soon be featured in Season 6 of Street Talk, watch this space for details.
