Secondary Linking Activity

Building Bridges Pendle runs a linking programme in Pendle as part of the national linking programme. This video shows students from two secondary schools who have come together over the space of two months to design and deliver a community cohesion project.

Their efforts culminated in a day where pupils toured the local area in a vintage bus and visited year 6 pupils at two local primary schools to deliver interactive workshops on the importance of understanding commonalities which exist between people from different backgrounds and on having a positive outlook to life and diversity.

Pupils then moved onto another challenge of engaging members of the public in the local town centre and having discussions as to why cohesion can be such a difficult matter to talk about and achieve.
