Rainbow Day

The Lgbtq+ community have been discriminated and left aside but it is time for that to stop: we are in the 21st century!

It is time to adapt, reform and accept other people’s differences without prejudice.

Capucine, Isabelle and Taïs studied To Kill a Mockingbird in English class.

They then had an overriding task: to understand where intolerance is born, and then to create more tolerance in our world. This project is designed to not only teach students about the important themes in the novel, but also to help them apply the lessons they learn to their own lives. They will create a real-life project that allows them to be a hero for a mockingbird in our school or community. They will identify a target group and then propose a way that they can stand up for the injustice that is identified. They must find an effective and real life way to promote their message and they will create a website that chronicles their discoveries and observations.

This is why Capucine, Isabelle et Taïs decided to focus on Lgbtq+ community and to organise a Rainbow day on 14th December.

“To Kill a Mockingbird” takes place in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Great Depression. The protagonist is Jean Louise (“Scout”) Finch, an intelligent though unconventional girl who ages from six to nine years old during the course of the novel.
