Schools today are more diverse than ever. Different backgrounds, cultures, and religions are interwoven into our classrooms. Schools have more of a responsibility to make everyone feel welcomed. Here at Goldington Green Academy we value and respect all pupils and work hard to make sure that all of our pupils feel accepted. We take every opportunity possible to celebrate the cultural diversity within our school community. Our pupils also get an opportunity to explore their individual heritage through the use of our Heritage Bag project. Across the school you will find evidence of the appreciation we hold for cultural diversity from our wonderful displays from around the world. We feel that it is so important that the environment reflects who we are and that there is instantly a sense of belonging for our pupils and their families.
During our recent Multi- cultural week 2018 celebration the children explored different cultures and customs through various art forms. We feel very fortunate to have these opportunities and relish in the new knowledge we gain, staff and children alike. This year was no exception with the high quality of artist we employed to deliver a creative enriched week for our pupils. This included, Bollywood, African Caribbean, Soca and Samba dancing. The children composed and performed American Rap and traditional Caribbean music. The Zulus launched the week with their infectious dance and singing performance. Children from year 4 and 5 created Native American totem poles, Mayan mask and African Lion heads.
On the 22nd June we will be holding our first Cultural Day whereby children, staff and parents will be invited to participate in the celebration. More information will be supplied nearer the time.
