Talking to Teenagers about Ceremonies…

A great session assisting as a Humanists UK schools volunteer at Streatham and Clapham High School last week. http://www.schs.gdst.net/
Pavan Dhaliwal and I spoke to Year 10 and 12 students about humanism, human rights and the work of Humanists UK, and also about my work as a celebrant. Some interesting ideas emerged for the girls’ own funerals! When I mentioned that a humanist funeral can be personalised to reflect the character, likes and dislikes of the deceased, the most memorable suggestion put forward was a Pick-and-Mix stand in the chapel. I think I like it….
