Within the Sustainable Development Goals an area where TY’s wanted to focus on this year was that of inclusion. As part of this theme students planned a culture event in December to celebrate the range of diversity in our school. They encouraged others to create a poster showcasing the country they were born in or have roots to. All these posters were colourfully displayed around the GCE Noticeboard and it was really interesting for everyone in school to learn more about all the different countries that our school community have connections to.
Congratulations to 1st year student Nicole Kellett who was the winner in the Junior Category of the Poetry Competition and to 5th year student Saidhbhe Honeyman who was the Senior Category winner. Thank you to the English Department who judged the entries. Congrats also to 3rd year student Amelia Woolterton who was the overall Art/Poster competition winner and to 1st year student Kate McCauley who was runner up in that competition. The theme for both of these was ‘Celebrating Culture’.
There was a ‘Coffee and Culture’ chat at breaktime where staff chatted informally about travel and culture. Second year student Theodora Usatii made a delicious Romanian Cake called Cozonac and 5th year student Huda Batool made Kheer a delicious Pakistani rice dessert for this. They were thoroughly enjoyed by staff.
There was also some cross curricular culture in action when French teacher Mr Keeney joined the Home Economics class where students made some delicious crepes with him over some conversational french.
