Black History Day
Whole School events are spaced throughout the academic year, with focused on a range of topics and subjects.
The whole school came together to observe a throught-provoking Black History Day.
Following a detailed and informative assembly led by organisers and Cultural Studies teachers Mrs Seaby & Mrs Nash, students of all four of our houses came together to embark on a full schedule of activities throughout the day. Each activity followed an individual history session of it's own to ground the work with the respect owed to it. Subjects covered were History, English, Music, Art, Cookery and Physical Education.
A snippet of the day can be seen on our facebook and instagram pages in a 'cut down' version of a video originally created by Bertie (Year 9) with roving reporters Matthew (Year 10) & Matthew (Year 9).
Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States, where it is also known as African-American History Month. It has received official recognition from governments in the United States and Canada, and more recently has been observed in Ireland, and the United Kingdom.
