This week’s WOW (Word of the Week) is ‘prejudice’, with a focus on the Roman (Latin) root of ‘jud’. This word has been chosen with the ‘International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia’ in mind. This day is celebrated on 17th May, raising important awareness of the prejudice, unfair treatment, and discrimination many people face because of their sexuality. Students across the Academy will discuss the negative impact of such intolerance when unpicking the root stems of this word, proudly standing together against prejudice and injustice in society.
