Multi Cultural Group

The multi cultural group have been a wonderful addition to the life of the school. The group made up entirely of parents have worked hard to organise high quality events for the children that have celebrated the diverse cultures we have in school. The children from these families have seen their cultures celebrated and their own self esteem has risen as a result. Throughout the school interest has been raised in how people in other parts of the world live and the differences between our way of life have been shared.

The multi cultural group have also led celebrations for special days from their country of origin.

So many positive aspects have come from this group and I believe the Multi Cultural Group represent all that is good in multi cultural education so that all cultures represented in school are celebrated and pupils are encouraged to feel positive and secure about their backgrounds.
