Chernobyl – 30 Year Anniversary – Summer Term 2016
On Tuesday 26 April, exactly 30 years after the Chernobyl Disaster, we welcomed visitors into school from Ukraine. Hasland Hall works closely with Mr Broom from the Chernobyl Children’s Charity and accompanying him on this occasion were Mr Vvgivskyy, Director of the Social and Psychological Rehabilitation Centre in Korosten, Ms Gys, project co-ordinator at the centre and translator for the speakers and Dr Zdanevich, a psychotherapist, who is a lead researcher into the impacts of Chernobyl on the psychology of children and adults.
Our visitors spent time with a group of Year 10 students discussing the continuing impact of the Chernobyl disaster on people’s lives both physically and psychologically. The talk was very informative and had added impact as the guest speakers live and work in the area. Students gained a greater insight into the after effects of the disaster.
Following this, two of our Year 10 School Council Members, Emily and Ivan, showed our visitors around the school site.
