The testimonies available on this website can be used by primary and secondary teachers from many disciplines to support and enhance their lessons. The educational resources provided here are FREE TO USE.  There is no need to create an account or register with the site in order to use them.

We are providing a variety of educational materials, which will make the Gathering the Voices website really helpful to teachers and their pupils.

You will find here Power Point presentations, lesson plans, work sheets, interactive games, and activities. You can explore the testimonies and discover which ones are most useful for your purposes.

This is a work in progress. We hope teachers will share and download, via this site, their own suggestions, advice, and examples of pupils’ work. We can then add these to
