How we connect: in school

Place2Be Ambassador, podcaster and journalist, Josh Smith, visited two secondary schools to ask students about the different ways they connect, and how connections can impact their mental health and wellbeing.

In this video, Josh and the students discuss how to make schools more connected and inclusive, touching on themes around LGBTQ+ and racial inclusion.


After watching this video, you may want to have a discussion as a class about how to make the school more inclusive. Here are a few suggested discussion points and questions:

  • How can we make our school feel more connected and inclusive?
  • How does the school curriculum celebrate diversity and inclusion?
  • What’s the difference between representation and allyship? How do they complement each other?
