If you lived in a slum, how would you respond to the following statements??….
Teacher, my dad stole a lady’s handbag, I know because we’ve had lots of food to eat this week and I saw the bag.
Teacher, my grandma is paying a drug dealer to get her medicine because the clinic has run out.
Teacher, my mum says I shouldn’t talk to Lucas anymore because his brother is in another gang.
The theme of our weekly assemblies this month is ‘right and wrong.’ The slums are a minefield of mixed messages and children are just trying to survive in the middle of it all. Using the Bible as a foundation, our assemblies this month will focus on helping children understand the concepts of right and wrong, as well as giving them confidence to share and make their own decisions.
