South African Apartheid

England, Scotland, Wales


This participatory workshop explores the use of apartheid from the 1950’s up to 1990. We introduce the key figures of the resistance, like Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko and Mamphela Ramphele. Your students will gain a unique understanding of the difficulties of the ear for non-white South Africans, and investigate many of the events that rallied black people across the country to stand up for their rights.

Your class will…

  • Explore a significant issue in world history and it’s interconnections with other world developments
  • Explore key figures of the anti-apartheid movement
  • Explore the story of Nelson Mandela
  • Have a great day!

One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with students in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the students can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!
