Militarisation in schools – a teacher’s perspective

Dr. Paula Radice has lived and worked as a primary teacher in Hastings & St Leonards since 1995 and in the last few years has been a local Headteacher. Hot’s Sean O’Shea talks with her about her experience of militarisation in schools, the impact it can have on young minds, and what it’s like being expected by Inspectors to “promote British values” in her school.

No faith In Trident

St Leonards-on-Sea resident, John Lynes, along with his fellow No Faith In Trident campaigners, Hannah Brock, Gillian Lawrence, Sam Donaldson and Ellis Brooks, are charged with ‘aggravated trespass’ at the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) at Burghfield where nuclear warheads are assembled. Others would label their action as ‘a non-violent protest against an illegal and immoral weapon of mass destruction’. Their trial takes place this week at Reading Magistrates’ Court. HOT’s Zelly Restorick reports.

‘Not 1066 and all that’ – a different approach to conventional history

In conventional history-making what seems to unite different historians is a particular subject matter, such as a period in history. The ‘Not 1066 and All That’ event on Saturday 8 October is not quite like that. Instead our emphasis is on how we have made history and ways of sharing this so that others can pursue their own interests, writes Hilda Kean, one of the organisers of this event.

Hoping for peace…

Alexandra Park is like the lungs going through the centre of the town of Hastings. Next to the rose garden and running alongside the stream lies the Peace Garden. It was conceived as the result of a conversation between the late Kevin Murphy and Sally Cole on 12 September 2001. The garden is dedicated to: “Personal, community and world peace…” Fiona Rankine and Erica Smith tell us the story of the latest development in the Peace Garden.
