YUVA Academy expands its wings. On
Thursday, 26 September 2019, YUVA completed another round of its Moral and
Civic Education (MCE) Programme. Through the training, the young students were
able to engage in stimulating conversations about philosophical, creative,
analytical and critical thinking.
In the first session, the Grade 10 and 12 students of the Bhujoharry College La Tour Koenig took their seats in the classroom, both full of expectation yet somewhat reserved. After introducing himself the trainer, Mr Padayachy started the session by explaining YUVA’s mission as an organisation and detailing the acronym: Youth United in Voluntary Action (YUVA). He went on to explain what the MCE programme is about. He then asked the students whether, and to what extent, they had already encountered these teaching contents. Many responded shyly to this question; most students are not often confronted with the themes of morality, critical or independent thinking, or even individuality.

The YUVA Academy has successfully launched its Moral and Civic Education programme at the Jean Marie Frank Richard State Secondary School, La Tour Koenig on Tuesday, 13 August 2019. During this first session, Mr Kris Padayachy, the trainer, and the YUVA team welcomed 38 determined and dynamic students.
The session opened with an introduction of the students before getting to the first topic of the day, which was ‘Respect’. Mr Padayachy talked about the respect of the self and the respect of others. During this part of the session, the students were a little shy to participate, so Mr Padayachy had a little chat with them to make them feel at ease. They were asked about where they live and at what time they reach school in the morning. After that, the students felt more comfortable to speak out during the rest of the session.
