On 23rd of August, PSCORE visited a class of Daejin Girls’ High School in Nowon-gu, Seoul, for a campaign on Korean Reunification at their school festival. Daejin Girls’ High School has the goals to cultivate creative, talented people and has the opinion that personality is the most important value of community culture that students have to live with.Personality is the most important value of the community culture that students have to live with.
Some of the interns had previously met the students where they collaboratively created creative and meaningful campaign boards for this event. We were welcomed by a friendly staff who gave us a tour around the school, invited us to view live k-pop inspired performances and invited us for lunch in the teachers’ cafeteria.
It was clear to see that the students had worked hard on decorating their halls and coming up with activities related to their school topics. The students who collaborated with us were wearing PSCORE t-shirts during the festival and they had created 4 different games mainly related to reunification and human rights, which they set up for in their classrooms. As a result, we were able hear about the opinions of the next generation from a South Korean perspective. It seems like opinions on reunification are still very divided, even among high school students. Looking back, it was a very interesting experience and we had a lot of fun doing it. We had a very great time participating in this successful event and we were all pleasantly surprised to see how innovative, creative and enthusiastic the students were.
We are looking very much forward to working hand in hand with these bright students again.
