STUDENTS and staff from Weston's Broadoak Academy have held a series of events throughout October to celebrate Black History Month.

A student-led group, called E.N.T.E.R (Educate Now To End Racism) ran assemblies focused around the subject of race inequality.

A number of interactive events were also held. The school hosted pop-ups from OTR (Off The Record) with a focus on micro-aggressions which are faced by the BAME community.

On top of this, a motivational speaker, called Lewis Wedlock, spoke to students about their local black history.

Broadoak students also showed their support of the charity Show Racism The Red Card by wearing the colour on Wear Red Day.

The theme of this year's national Black History Month was 'saluting our sisters.' To honour this, displays were put up around the school of inspirational Black women.

Rose Hooke, associate assistant principal for Behaviour and Culture said: “I am so proud of our community. We came together this month to display our unity as a school.

“Black history is all our history, and it is important, more so now than ever, that it is taught to our young people."
