RE PGCE & CND Peace Education 7.3.19

During their enhancement week, the PG trainees took part in a session led by Owen and Barbara from CND Peace Education. Trainees considered how to tackle issues such as Weapons of Mass Destruction and Just war in RE and then partook in a mock trial of President Truman and his actions of dropping the hydrogen bomb during WW2. After some very tense court room clashes (and very bad Perry Mason impersonations) – trainees found him not guilty of war crimes, concluding that his actions had been justified. The afternoon was a much more peaceful affair with trainees making peace cranes and some uncovering a talent for origami that they didn’t know existed!
