Last week, children from across the school were given either an assignment, a story to read or an assembly to access to help them reflect on the Black Lives Matter protests that are occurring across the globe.
It is such an important and complex topic but one that is essential for the children to understand.
It has been amazing to read some of the children’s reflections - all illustrating the school’s values of respect for diversity. It has also been amazing to see some of the children’s mature approach to the topic, asking insightful questions, demonstrating a desire for change and trying to understand the history. We are so proud of the children for this and hope that these sorts of conversations will continue.
