Concern ‘Write the World’ Update

We received this email from Concern so we’re posting it here for your attention.

Hi there Teachers,

Thanks for welcoming Nicole and me into your schools these past couple of weeks, I hope your students benefited from and enjoyed the workshops and that we’ll get lots of interesting material from your writers.
I’ve attached the list of websites and films I was telling some of you about – they’re a good place to start with research or to spark some creative ideas.
Remember the email address for submitting written or created pieces and/or photos of your school’s ‘Madiba Memorial’ is schools@concern.net.
So please remind your students before the Easter break!
Thanks and enjoy the holidays -
