The Sixth Form College, Solihull celebrated the breadth of its community last week by holding a Diversity Day.
The Student Council and other interested students produced display boards about their own cultures, including displays on British, Pakistani, Jamaican, Spanish, Somalian and Kenyan cultures. There were also displays to represent the LGBT community and Paganism. Some students wore traditional dress and produced items of food particular to their culture. A member of teaching staff offered henna hand tattoos to students over the lunch break.
Assistant Principal Louise Dale-Barron commented: “Equality and Diversity is a central value of the College and we celebrate the many things that we have in common as well as those that make us individuals. It was wonderful to see students embracing this celebration with such enthusiasm.”
