Black History Month

As October is Black History Month, Miss Thorne led a Senior School assembly earlier this week with Safa, Shria and Anisa to discuss the theme for 2022 which is ‘time for change: actions not words.’

Civil Rights individuals such as Martin Luther King Jr and Rosa Parks featured in the assembly, alongside people who are recently making History such as Donald Palmer for his research on cancer at Imperial College in London as well as Mae Jemison who was the first Afro-American woman who flew into space.

The assembly also discussed the role of black musicians and how Stormzy has funded scholarships at Cambridge University to offer financial support to those who would not have been able to attend university otherwise.
