‘DEADRITE’ is a card game to assist school teachers in introducing the topic of death within the Social, Personal and Health Education (SPHE) curriculum. Our society tends to shelter children from the reality of death, leaving them tragically unprepared for situations in which it might impact them. Many teachers currently feel ill-equipped to break this taboo.
DEADRITE introduces the topic in a gentle and matter-of-fact way by offering information about our funerary practices. Questions are asked, conversations begin and experiences might be shared, while the teacher is present in a supporting role to facilitate a normalising peer-to-peer learning experience.
