PROUD2B Schools Project Salaam Shalom’s Proud2B schools project aims to help prevent the development of prejudice and stereotyping, by widening pupils’ intercultural awareness at a vital stage in their development, as they embark on their move to secondary school.
They are introduced to a range of creative activities, which also improve their self-esteem and communication. The project enables pupils to use media and the arts to explore more about identity and community. The project aims to raise inter-community awareness and help prevent the development of prejudices, discrimination and fear of ‘the other’, as pupils embark on their move to secondary schools.
“They increased their knowledge of aspects of different religions and gained skills using recording equipment. The children had a fantastic opportunity creating a song lyrically from scratch (they loved that and are very proud of the song)”
“Some children were more animated and participatory than normal. Confidence growth and the biggest benefit was working with children from another school.”
“Good opportunity to mix and share lives outside their own. How lucky they are!”
“I think it’s a great opportunity for our pupils to look outside our community and to meet other pupils- especially for Yr6, prior to moving to secondary school”
