Social Justice - People & Protest by Estelle

20160623_133405.jpg


In our class we were learning about scale drawings, decimal points, measurement and enlarging. We were also learning about Catholic Social Justice in our Religious Education. For our inquiry we have been researching inspiring historical people for our focus “People and Protest.” (Our intention is to enter the Elsie Locke Writing Competition). The first part of our inquiry was teacher led where we found out about Saint Oscar Romero. It was also a math activity. We had to scale and ratio a copy of the painting and enlarge it so that it could be put onto our class wall. (This image is as big as I am!) This came from the site:Truly Love thy Neighbour. My self directed inquiry is on St. Joan of Arc.

Malala Yousafzai by Naomi

            Malala Yousafzai
Malala Yousafzai was born on the 12th of July 1997. She lived and grew up in a small town in Pakistan called Mingora Pakhtunkhwa. As a young girl Malala would continually go to school ignoring the Taliban's orders for females to cease their educational life at school. At the age of 15 Malala was shot in the head and neck by the Taliban. She is a teenage activist who supports girls education. Malala later won the peace prize when she was only 17, which makes her the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Peace Prize.

Malala’s cause was to stand up for girls education and not allow the Taliban to suppress the girls from learning at school. The main reason for Malala’s bravery was because she personally felt that the girls didn’t deserve getting prohibited from what they wanted for their future. Sure, Malala was frightened of the Taliban, but she was more afraid for the girls’ who were going to lose their education because of the pressure that was placed upon them.

“I don’t want revenge on the Taliban, I want education for sons and daughters of the Taliban”.- Malala Yousafzai

Oscar Romero by Maranita

Oscar Romero was a very holy man. He was born in Ciudad Barrios, El Salvador on August 15th 1917. He had a big family that lived in a small home with not enough money, though they had more than most of their neighbours. As a young boy, Oscar was determined to become a priest. At the age of 14 he joined the Catholic priesthood. In the year 1977, he became Archbishop of San Salvador. A few weeks after he became Archbishop, his friend, Rutilio Grande was brutally murdered. The death of his friend changed the way Oscar felt and thought.

After Oscar changed, he felt  an urge to change the way the poor and the oppressed were treated. He started public speaking and telling everyone about the ‘disappearances’ and murders of others. To help spread the message to everyone in El Salvador he spoke on a radio broadcast. By doing this, he gave hope to the people whose voices couldn’t be heard. While he was fighting for the oppressed and the poor, he angered the government and the rich and powerful. After some time, the government took matters in their own hands and blew up the radio broadcast headquarters. The day before Oscar died, he went to talk directly to the soldiers. He said to them “I beg you… I implore you…. I order… in the name of God, stop the repression!” The evening after, on March 24 1980, he was shot while taking a mass by an assassin who was working for the government.

The death of Oscar Romero caused many people grief and pain. Thousands of people attended his funeral. However, people died and hundreds were injured because the army opened fire at them. 12 years after his death, people found out that the ex-mayor of San Salvador, General Roberto D’Aubuisson, was the reason why Oscar Romero died. Oscar Romero was canonized on the 23rd of May 2015.

Who was Oscar Romero? by Hannah

Oscar Romero


Oscar Romero was a lovely man because he helped the poor people and stepped up for them. He was born in August on 15th 1917 in Ciudad. When he was 11 or 10 years old he went and got an education and it was at Pontifical Gregorian University. The death of his friend changed his life to fighting for the poor with all his love and justice. He became bishop of San Salvador in 1977. After witnessing  abuse of human rights, he began to speak out on behalf of the poor.


Oscar Romero helped the poor people and also care for poor people. He had to fight with the government. The government didn’t want Oscar Romero to spread the Christian message.


Oscar Romero died at San Salvador, he died on 24th of march 1980. He died at Divine Providence church. He died because he was shot by a government assassin while was holding the wine. He was shot in the heart and fell down and blood started dripping from his heart to the ground.
