On Wednesday 29th September 2021, Mrs Patel held an assembly to launch Black History Month 2021.
The theme of this year’s celebrations is ‘PROUD TO BE’.
We thought about what it means to have the power within us and our teachers shared with us what they are proud to be.
We then thought about some trailblazers who fought with pride to make positive changes for themselves and their communities, from Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks to Paul Stephenson and Jesse Owens.
Over the next month, we are looking forward to celebrating the achievements and contributions made by people from African and Caribbean heritage, celebrating moving away from segregation to unity and reflecting and learning from the mistakes of the past to make sure that we don’t continue to make the same mistakes today.
Look out for updates as we move into October as we share with you our work, which will culminate with a Celebration of Learning on 20th October when we will all come together to showcase what we have learnt.
