During the month of October, the girls worked incredibly hard on increasing their awareness surrounding inspirational black men and women and their life-changing contributions to the world we live in today.

We looked at the courageous Rosa Parks and her important bus boycott, as well as the determined Mae Jemison who was the first black woman to travel into space. We certainly did not forget Usain Bolt and his incredible title of ‘the world’s fastest man’, and we were all wowed by the amazing Martin Luther King Jr and the power and importance that his words still have today.

The girls created poems, fact files, posters and even some fantastic fictional writing; exploring why fairness is important, why we must celebrate our differences, and why we should also be proud of the skin we are in. Year 3 performed an African song called ‘The Secret Mountain’ which was featured as part of a special celebration assembly on Monday 16 November, showcasing lots of the girls’ and boys’ amazing work. The assembly can be found in the ‘Girls’ Prep Life’ folder on Showbie, so please do take a look at their fantastic achievements!
