A group of students spoke powerfully and eloquently to the whole school yesterday about the importance of celebrating Black History Month.
Students throughout the School have been discussing Black History Month in PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) lessons during October. Each year group has had a particular focus, with key figures in history, transatlantic trade and the Windrush Generation among the topics covered.
Then on Monday morning a group of students addressed the whole school in assembly about the importance of Black History Month and how we can all make a positive difference in the world.
Black History Month was first launched in London in the 1980s. It gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand black heritage and culture.
Many congratulations to the students who spoke on Monday morning.
