St Anne’s School is holding a ‘respect and tolerance’ afternoon today featuring readings and music from pupils and staff.
The event responds to tolerance issues around the world brought to the fore in recent weeks by the Black Lives Matter campaign.
Headteacher Martin Winward said: ‘Alderney All Together is an opportunity for children at St. Anne’s to voice their opinion and raise awareness of what respect and tolerance means to them.
‘Over the last two weeks young people and staff have been discussing, though lessons and topic time, what equality and inclusion means to them. The recent news and heightened awareness around race has ignited the passion of our seniors and has given opportunity for special assemblies to take place.’
The event, described as similar to Sports Day, will include moments like pupils joining hands in the lower playground. From around 1.50pm
Parents have been invited to join pupils at 2pm on the school sports field where seating and gazebos have been laid out. The ice cream van will be there to provide refreshments.
Visitors are asked to leave by 3pm to ease congestion prior to the end of the school day at 3.05pm.
