Celebrating Diversity Week

Bethany celebrated Diversity Week with a variety of activities including international music, movies, food and culminating with the final KRS challenge of the year – a huge relay around the fields and a final three-legged colour run.

From Monday to Thursday, pupils in Year 9 all took part in a project-based learning task to produce a PSHE resource for a local primary school.

The week started with informative talks from the charities Porchlight, Just Like Us, MIND and Tree of Hope. Some pupils met with local primary heads and pitched their ideas to receive feedback, and all represented the school fantastically well. Resources produced included games to teach young people about homelessness or different religions and emotion mood boards for the playground.

The annual Bethany School Diversity Colour run then took place on Friday 21st June when the air was awash with all the colours of the rainbow. This is based on the Holi festival in India and involves the throwing of coloured powder on all participants.

It was also one of the final chances for the Bethany competitive houses to get some points on the board in the quest to win this years Jessel Shield. Teams from Kiplings, Roberts and Speakers worked together to take a relay baton around the field as many times as possible.

Bethany pupils fully embraced the race, the fun and the colours.

We are all different and all the same.
