SOS Malta is inviting young people aged between 8 and 13, to participate in their free global drama and activity workshop. The aim of the workshop is to increase understanding of the participants about issues such as migration, climate change, food security and gender equality and about how they can participate in finding solutions to these global issues through an interactive, fun and hands on learning experience.
SOS Malta, in collaboration with the Helen O’Grady Academy will run a one-off global drama and activity workshop with approximately 20 participants aged 8-13 years old, through which children learn about the sustainable developmental goals (SDGs) through the issues highlighted above. The same workshop will be held 4 times in different locations.
The workshops will take place on the following days, times and locations:
- Saturday 18th February 2017 from 14hrs to 18hrs at Zurrieq Primary School.
- Saturday 11th March 2017 from 14hrs to 18hrs at Zabbar Primary School B
- Saturday 18th March 2017 from 14hrs to 18hrs at H’Attard Primary School
- Saturday 25th March 2017 from 14hrs to 18hrs at St. Paul’s Bay Primary School
The participants would be given the opportunity to choose the workshop that is most suitable to them in terms of time and location. Parents are also invited to attend the last twenty minutes of the workshop to watch the performance. Participants are asked to bring recyclable materials for the craft section of the workshop.
This project is funded by the EU Foundation for the Promotion of Social Inclusion in Malta and aims to encourage the active participation of communities in global issues. The aim of the workshop is to use a non-formal learning approach, including activities such as a drama play and crafts to provoke children to reflect upon the differences with their own lives and those of children living in different situations and to discuss how their actions could contribute to changing the world for the better.
This workshop will be free of charge. All we ask for is the active participation and commitment of attendees to the full workshop.If you would like to register your child for this workshop, could you kindly fill up this Application form online.
