World Poetry, African drumming, ethnic food stalls; charity organisations and traditional British scones were just some of activities that took place on Wednesday 19th March for Diversity Day. The event incorporated all students and staff in a bid to raise awareness of a range of different cultures whilst also promoting equality.
Several charities promoted their causes including Beans Means Brains, a scheme that supports education projects in Uganda. The UK based ‘Pets as Therapy’ also attended to promote the work that they do in supporting hospitals, schools and care homes by bringing animals into these place with the aim of inspiring and educating children and the unwell.
Sports staff and students actively promoted the ‘Kick it Out’ campaign, an equality and inclusion campaign aimed at tackling issues related to racism within the game of football.
Vice Principal, Jenny Milsom, said, “We are committed to ensuring equality in everything that we do and this was a celebration of the diverse world in which we all live.”
“Overall it was a fun occasion that resonated strongly with students and staff. We look forward to hosting a similar event like this next year.”
