South African Apartheid

England, Scotland, Wales


Your students will gain a unique understanding of the difficulties of the era for non-white South Africans and investigate many of the events that rallied black people across the country to stand up for their rights.

One Day’s South Africa series explores the use of apartheid from the 1950’s up to it’s end in 1990. Your class will creatively explore that individuals can challenge unjust systems and create fairer societies! Together we will introduce the key figures of the resistance like Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko and Mamphela Ramphele. 

Learning Objectives:


  • Why and how rules and laws are made and enforces, why different rules are needed in different situations and how to take part in making and changing rules
  • To realise the consequences of anti-social and aggressive behaviours such as bullying, racism on individuals and communities.


  • Will recognise that the past is represented and interpreted in different ways and to creatively explore reasons for this

One Day will work with your pupils through a dynamic and creative workshop with our fully trained professional facilitator. Our One Day facilitator and your budding thespians will explore a diverse range of key themes such as enhanced creative teaching of the chosen topic, stimulating imagination, encouraging discussion, enhanced speaking and listening skills, improved confidence, teamwork  and oh yes… let’s not forget… bags and bags of fun!
