As a subject at Millennium Schools, Citizenship has the power to motivate and educate young people into becoming thoughtful, active citizens who engage with, and participate in, public life. Citizenship involves people acting together to address issues of common concern to maintain the democratic culture and to improve society. To achieve this goal, Millennium Citizenship education teaches knowledge understanding about politics, the law and the economy and skills to participate effectively and responsibly in public and democratic life. Through citizenship education, students:
- Explore questions about democracy, justice, inequality, how we are governed and organized.
- Learn to work together to create solutions that try to address challenges facing neighborhoods and wider communities.
- Develop political literacy to make a positive contribution to society as informed and responsible citizens.
