‘Love one another as I have loved you.’ John 13:34.

Racial Justice Sunday

The bishops in our country said the theme for Racial Justice 2021 was  ‘A Time to Act‘. Pope Francis teaches us that we should love and welcome everyone, just as Jesus did.  To mark Racial Justice Sunday, the children wrote prayers for racial justice. We also had an assembly and collective worship to celebrate.

Martin Luther King Jr Day

Each year on the third Monday of January we observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and reflect on the work that still needs to be done for racial equality. This Year the children and teachers wrote “I have a dream too” poems about their dreams for the future. We also joined together as a school community with an assembly about Martin Luther King Junior.

Black Lives Matter

I am sure many of you will have witnessed and felt deeply saddened by the death of George Floyd on 25th May 2020. What happened to George Floyd highlights the ongoing racism and inequality encountered by people of color every day in America, in our country and throughout the world.
Whilst on Earth, Jesus gave us a new commandment: ‘Love one another as I have loved you’ John 13:34. When we think about what happened to George Floyd, it is
impossible for us, as followers of Jesus, to remain silent. Put quite simply, Black Lives Matter and when we witness anything that contradicts Jesus’ teaching, we must join together in solidarity as a whole community to educate our children. We want to spend every day educating ourselves and our children about equality.
Black Lives Matter in our School!

Stephen Lawrence Day

We remembered the life of Stephen Lawrence by learning about his legacy and his mums mission. Baroness Lawrence wants to bring about:
* Making the community a better and safer place
* Being more tolerant of each other
* Being more inclusive
* Understanding how your small actions can make big changes

With God’s commandment of “Love thy neighbor as thy self” guiding us and Stephen Lawrence inspiring us we designed posters on ways we can be activists for change and encourage tolerance between all people.

International Day

Every year we celebrate international day where the children come to school dressed in their National clothes and parents bring in food from their country. We are extremely proud of our multi cultural school. God has blessed us with a rich cultural diversity and we take every opportunity to celebrate our heritage.

‘Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord! ‘ Psalm 117:1-2
