What is Political Literacy

Report by Mrs Millar

What is Political Literacy? This is a question we will be answering over the next few months in Our Lady’s High School. Our new hashtag #pollitolhs will be appearing in many of our lessons this term, whatever the subject area. In fact, any time our pupils are giving their opinions about what is fair and what is not, thinking about their world, listening to other points of view, showing compassion for other people – they are developing the important skills and qualities involved in being politically literate. We want all our young people to become responsible citizens of a fair and honest society and we hope our #pollitolhs focus helps us achieve this aim – watch this hashtag!
