Celebrating Life in Modern Britian

THE HEREFORD ACADEMY EU REFERENDUM AND BRITISH VALUES WEEK
 

As part of the build-up to the EU referendum students of The Hereford Academy spent the week exploring and celebrating life in modern Britain.
 

Students participated in a range of activities including playing the Trade Game; simulating trade between different countries to understand the UK’s place in the word. Interviews took place with Hereford’s MP, Jesse Norman, Mayor, Jim Kenyon, Bishop of Hereford, Richard Frith and Lord Lisvane, Robert Rogers about their values and opinions. A representative from the Armed Services came in and delivered a presentation about the values of the British Army and the Oath of Allegiance all soldiers take when joining.
 

The focus was around developing understanding of ‘British Values’ and The Academy values of ‘Service, Community, Trust and Endurance’.
 

Tanya Everard, Assistant Principal said:

The week provided an excellent opportunity to offer experiences which broaden horizons and contribute to preparing students for life in modern Britain; in particular, getting young people actively engaged with democracy. This is important for the future and following the tragic death of MP Jo Cox last week, poignant for young people see democracy as an agent for change rather than hatred and violence. We look forward to doing more events in the future”. 


During the week Year 7 participated in a trip to London and a street party was held celebrating the Queen’s birthday. There was opportunity to watch the England vs Wales match and the week ended with the whole school voting in The Academy’s EU referendum which saw a result of ‘Leave’ in the lead with 235 votes and ‘Remain’ 225 with 13 spoilt votes.

 

Eu Debate

As part of the build-up to the EU referendum students of The Hereford Academy spent the week exploring and celebrating life in modern Britain and took part in a number of activities, including a mock EU referendum vote.

Josh Harrison leading the ‘Leave’ campaign said: “I am delighted with the result. Money spent previously on EU membership can now be put back into Britain, for example given to the NHS to benefit the people of Britain”.


Will Nash said for the ‘Remain’ campaign said: “I am really disappointed because I felt sure the students would vote to stay. I thought they would see the financial importance of Britain remaining in the EU for trading and industry.”
