Friday 17th June - Year 9 Diversity Day

We have the pleasure of bringing our second ever Diversity Day to Year 9 students as a Celebration of Equality and Inclusion.

Vision for Diversity Day

This day is a step on our journey to ensure that we have a respectful and inclusive culture where there are no ‘by-standers’ and that diverse characters are represented within the dynamic of our school, reflecting our rich and cohesive community.

There will be a carousel of workshops throughout the day:  Wellbeing; Sign language; LGBTQ+; World religions;  Origami & Japanese Art; African Drumming; World Dance; Art; Guide Dogs; Gender Equality; Neurodiversity; Anti-bullying.
