Year 9 and 10 welcomed Deana Puccio, the co-founder of The RAP project (Raising Awareness and Prevention) this morning. The workshop informed pupils about the UK laws defining consent, sexual offences and promoted digital and personal safety. The talk also examined how social media may impact their view of consensual, healthy and intimate relationships.
Last week, Deana’s work through The RAP Project was reported on in the ‘New York Times’, with the headline “Brainwashing a Generation: British Schools Combat Andrew Tate’s Views”. Deana’s experience as an attorney in Brooklyn specialising in sex crime, gave her wealth of knowledge to pass on to the next generation.
We were very fortunate to welcome The RAP Project into Claremont and it was an excellent opportunity for the students to ask questions and learn more about face-to-face and online personal safety.
