Black History Month

In October we celebrated Black History Month to learn, honour and celebrate the achievements of black men and women throughout history.  Some of the fun and thought-provoking activities and events:
•    Some year 9 pupils wrote wonderful poetry based on Martin Luther King’s speech, titled ‘I have a dream…’.  Poetry will be displayed in the library (see link)
•    All tutor groups tested their knowledge on black history with a quiz put together by the head of history
•    Post-16 pupils delivered assemblies about the inspirational Nelson Mandela and his fight against racism and working for freedom for the African people
•    Pupils from yr. 8 – 13 debated the following statement “This house believes that since Martin Luther King’s speech in 1963, persecution and inequality based on ethnicity, sexuality or gender has largely become a thing of the past”.  Those leading the debate presented a well-researched argument for and against.  Questions and comments were taken from the audience.  A great debate from start to finish.
•    A display highlighting inspirational black men and women such as Rosa Parks, Barack Obama, Mohammed Ali, Doreen Lawrence + more
