KCS Welcomes Fiona Corcoran, Greater Chernobyl Cause

We were delighted to welcome guest speaker Fiona Corcoran, founder of The Greater Chernobyl Cause who spoke to our transition year students earlier this month.

The Greater Chernobyl Cause was set up in 1999 as a response to the world’s worst nuclear disaster but has now widened its mission to concentrate on the human casualties of the break-up of the former Soviet Union.

Students learned about the plight of the people of Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine and the suffering that exists there. As part of the educational programme, students were shown a documentary about the work of the organisation and a photographic presentation. The documentary provided a phenomenal insight into the work of young TY volunteers in Kazakhstan and truly resonated with the students.

Pictured are some of the TY students with guest speaker Fiona Corcoran.
