The Slave Trade and Slavery

On Monday 30th April the History Squad came to STM to teach the year 7 students about the Slave trade and Slavery.

He told students how the slave trade was organised and how slaves were treated when taken captive and sent across the Atlantic Ocean. Kevin Hicks had brought many artefacts which students were invited to try.

Many brave year 7 students volunteered! We were also made aware how much slavery is still going on today - be it in different ways - even in the UK.
