Black history month

In October the Appleton School has been celebrating Black History Month. Black History Month is a key event in our equalities, diversity and inclusions calendar. We celebrate Black History Month every year in order to honour and recognise the hardships and achievements of Black individuals throughout history. The theme this year is ‘Saluting Our Sisters’- recognising the amazing contributions of Black women. In assembly we talked about Mary Seacole and her amazing contributions to modern nursing.

We will also be celebrating by taking part in The National Black History Month Poetry Competition. Give your Poem a great title. The title often gives the reader a hint or insight into the theme, mood, or subject of the poem. It can serve as an entry point, allowing the reader to understand the poem's context or setting. All entries must be brought to Mr Wood in C15 by the deadline (November 15th).
