Quainton Hall Celebrates Black History Month

We commemorated Black History Month during the month of October through engaging activities including art sessions and an author event.

Over the course of the month pupils explored subjects including racial and cultural diversity in British Society as well as engaged in meaningful discussion and debate on this year’s Black History Month slogan, “Time for change: Action not words”.  They also looked at the achievements of famous black figures including Rosa Parks and Maya Angelou and enjoyed an author event with Sir Lenny Henry, the author of ‘The Boy with Wings’.

It has been wonderful to see pupils from nursery to Year 6 enthusiastically joining in to learn about this historic month and all that it signifies.
