Black History Month
Eltham Hill School celebrates Black History Month
Black History Month is celebrated every October in the UK as an annual commemoration of the history, achievements and contributions of Black people in the UK.
Eltham Hill School recognises Black History Month 2022 as a positive opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black people to the UK and Global society, both in October, but also throughout the year.
This month also provides a chance to focus on and improve awareness of issues affecting different communities. As a school we continue with our commitment to diversifying our curriculum and this month provides an opportunity to share and explore experiences and histories not have not often been included within the traditional educational curriculum and/or resources.
One of the key highlights of our Black History Month calendar is our annual Black History Month conference for our students in Years 9- 13. This will be an opportunity for them to:
• Celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black British people,
• Learn about some of the important events in Black history
• Discuss, debate and consider how we can learn from each other to make society more equal
Our Black History Month calendar of events is exciting, inspiring and diverse and includes a range of fantastic events that will allow us as a school community to gain deeper knowledge, celebrate and share experiences. Please see our calendar of events below for more details.
