Black History MonthBack
October marks ‘Black History Month’ and at WJS we’ll be using Collective Worship and class PSHE sessions to discuss this topic. The theme for 2021 is, ‘Proud to Be’ This campaign encourages people of all ages to share what they are proud to be on social media. Now in its 34th year, this Black History Month has a renewed focus on black British resistance to racism – inspired in part by last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests – and celebrates key figures who have made substantial contributions to the country.
We’re looking forward to continuing to educate our school community on African ancestry. It’s an opportunity to learn about many contributions, accomplishments and challenges which have historically been taken for granted.
