Camden Against Violence Silent Vigil

posted 8 Mar 2018, 07:08 by Gerald Clark   [ updated 15 Mar 2018, 04:04 ]

We have joined forces with the parent-led group Camden Against Violence to organise a Silent Vigil on Thursday 22nd March.  We will be assembling in Queens Crescent from 4pm, to depart at 4:30pm down Malden Road, along Prince of Wales Road and into Camden.

We want to give teachers, support staff and Leadership in Camden an opportunity to show solidarity with the community we serve and in particular those families that were directly affected by the stabbings in Camden two weeks ago.

We will be writing to Headteachers to ask them to attend also, and to allow staff to be released from after school activities on the day, but would like our members to mark the date down now in your diaries.  Please invite anyone that you think would like to join us to do so.  The idea is that the march will be silent, but please prepare placards and banners.

Please find the flyer and route map attached below.

Challenging Sexism in Schools and Colleges

A report into Sexual Harassment in schools has been produced by UK Feminista in association with the National Education Union. Alarmingly, it appears to show that not much has changed over the last 30 years. A copy of the report can be found below. 

East London Teachers Association is holding a special one day conference in March that we are supporting.
