The story so far

I PACKED THIS MYSELF was a project working with migrant workers and local communities in Cornwall, which started in 2006. We found instances of exploitation, discrimination and outright racism. I PACKED THIS MYSELF brought people together to increase understanding. This blog is a record of the work done over the following five years.

Excellent feedback from Penrice Community College

Assistant teacher Jason Wood writes a kind email following hard work by Jo Grace and Bartek earlier in the month. Both found the school very impressive and focussed on the issue.
"We were impressed by the way you adapted your assemblies to the different year groups and also responded to the different expectations of english and drama classes. We have a significant number of migrant worker families in school and you have helped improve students empathy for migrants.
Your workshops recieved a very good response from the students and teachers. You made us think and challenged perceptions of migrant workers in Cornwall."
