GCSE Citizenship group visitors: Serving Stories

war vets 1

The GCSE Citizenship group had a session last week exploring the stories of living veterans to discover how war can effect society and communities.

The session was run by the Imperial War Museum North. The girls spent a great deal of time listening to various veterans stories of how they had been affected by conflict. Veterans had served in Afghanistan, Iraq, Northern Ireland and stationed in many different parts of the world.

We had veterans from each different service, army, navy and RAF. This was a great way to explore how war effects society. The sharing of stories followed with an exploration of how government funds can impact on how decisions are made in society.

Thank you to Serving stories and those who came in to share their experiences. We had a great time, check out the pictures below…
