Hi Laura,

Welcome to the course. I love the extract you have taken from Ehigie’s paper. Getting their students to believe and invest in that motto is something that any teacher would be proud of. Like any ‘change’ initiative, it is important to start small and ensure early ‘wins’ to keep the momentum going and to generate interest with others. The sustainable development goals are an excellent learning resource, and you will cover them in more detail in module 3 (global inequalities). The last point you have made is another very important one – development education will have the greatest impact if it is done on a whole-school level. Having whole-school celebrations and whole-school projects adds a layer of authenticity to the area.
