Black History Month

Tuesday 8 November 2016

Black History Month is an annual celebration that takes place throughout October. The pupils and staff at Abbot’s Hill enjoyed celebrating Black History and learnt a lot through the experience.

Some of the activities that took place included drama pupils looking at the story of Rosa Parks, art students’ paintings inspired by the poems of Maya Angelou and the Home Economics department cooking Caribbean-inspired food. The PE department explored the life of Jesse Owens, including a screening of 2016 film ‘Race’ which focuses on his story. The English department explored a number of interesting texts, including the work of Toni Morrison, and the Prep School made wonderful large-scale displays of the work they created in their lessons.

Thank you to all of the staff who made Black History Month such an interesting and insightful time.
