Postcards of Hope

As part of our Global Issues Curriculum, students across Lionheart schools have been learning about the expulsion of Asians from Uganda in 1972 and the subsequent settlement of many in Leicester, and the significant positive impact this had on the rich diversity of our city of Leicester.

Through teaching and class discussions, students were asked to consider the similarities between the Ugandan resettlement 50 years ago, and the crisis the people of Ukraine are facing today. Following this, students applied their learning by writing messages of hope for the Ukrainian people. These messages of hope are proudly displayed across Lionheart schools, and were also posted to the National Youth Agency’s Support for Ukraine Gallery.
