Our second workshop this year at Penair School, Truro. Led by Jo Grace with Konrad, a Polish worker from St Ives.
Jo reports back:
"We had a good time, the students listened well. Some very sensible and mature questions were asked, and at times it became a debate, with students putting forward their points of view on why the Cornish can be resistent to migrants, and reflecting on the heritage of Cornwall, one boy suggested it was because we have such a strong cultural identity down here that we feel threatened by the presence of 'outsiders'. It was a really interesting session and students were very forthcoming despite the large group."
