Joanne and Birgit from the Global Citizenship team have been busy coming up with some ideas to try and help you keep learning about what it means to be a Global Citizen while you are learning from home and have some fun at the same time.
We decided that reading a book is always a good idea and thought it would be nice to set up our very own Green-Schools book club and we hope you will join us! We have created a week-long series of fun activities in relation to the book and we hope you will also be learning something new about the Global Goals. Throughout the week there will be story times and lots and lots of activities that will help you explore the Global Goals.
Welcome to the second book in our Global Goals Book Club – Razia’s Ray of Hope. This story covers a lot of things that we will explore throughout the week. We would like you to ‘read’ the audio book here and then you might enjoy doing the character profile activity below. Sit back and enjoy the story![/fusion_text]

Activity – Persuasive Writing
Here we are going to learn about one of the Sustainable Development Goals : Quality Education. This is one of the Global Goals that Ireland is doing well so when you get back to school remember to say a huge thanks to your principal and teachers who work very hard to provide quality education to all students and learners through out the school year. Globally about 258 million children and youth don’t go to school (UNESCO institute for Statistics UIS). Goal 4 Quality Education is trying to achieve education for all by 2030. Doesn’t that sound great? Imagine if you couldn’t go back to school ever. How would you feel?
In the book Razia’s Ray of Hope we know that Razia has no access to school. Girls in her country were not allowed to go to school for a long time. She needed permission from the men in her family. Does that sound fair? If you were Razia how would you convince Baba (her father) and her brothers to let you go to school? Complete the activities below and try to convince them to let you attend the new school. Why is it important to get an education?
Activity – Arts and Crafts
Today we are going to be celebrating the best woman in your life through our craft project. Watch the craft lesson below and get crafting. Please share your creations with us @GreenSchoolsIre and the celebrated woman in your life! Have fun!
Activity – From where I stand: Global Citizenship and Gender Equality
Hello everyone, today we are going to see how the story of Razia links to Global Goal 5 on Gender Equality. Do you know what gender equality means? Do you think that it is fair that boys in Afghanistan can go to school and girls cannot? Just imagine if it was like that here in Ireland! What can we do about this unfair situation in our own lives? Have a look at the video below where Emma Watson explains the ‘ From where I stand’ activity you can do to raise awareness about Goal number 5
