"Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States, where it is also known as African-American History Month. It has received official recognition from governments in the United States and Canada, and more recently has been observed in Ireland, and the United Kingdom. It began as a way of remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It is celebrated in February in the United States and Canada, while in Ireland, and the United Kingdom it is observed in October."
As part of the black history month celebrations our staff have been hard at work organising some events and activities for the students to take part in.
Other exciting events have also taken place such as G-Ma's kitchen, that some of our staff put an incredible amount of effort into, allowing some of our students to try some authentic Caribbean food.
We have also had a visit from the EAGA choir who some of you may remember as the semi finalists of Britain's Got Talent 2018. During their visit they gave an incredible performance, performing some songs to our students.
