#LifeWorks Presentation entitled ‘This is my Life’

12th Oct 2017

On Tuesday 10th October, we invited Emma and the LifeWorks team to speak to the Year 12 students of our school.  As part of their Year 12 GCSE Religious Education, our students complete a topic on the Sanctity of Human Life which explores the dignity of the human person and related moral issues.

The presentation, entitled This is my Life, highlighted the wonder of life, and showed step-by-step development of life in the womb using footage from modern ultrasound technology.  It also addressed the challenges faced in crisis pregnancy and highlighted the positive alternatives to abortion by focusing on the stories of people who choose life in challenging circumstances.

The representatives from LifeWorks, Emma, Kate and Clodagh were respectful, knowledgeable and confident and gave a very thought provoking, clear and understandable delivery backed up by facts presented in a non-judgemental way.  Opposing views were identified and confronted, challenging the students to consider their own opinions and beliefs.
