Celebrating Schools Diversity Week At Bethany

Published by Bethany School on Friday 23rd of June 2023

This week has been Diversity Week at Bethany and we have had a fantastic week with numerous opportunities to learn more about each other and the world that we live in. 

 All year groups have listened to a Chapel service about our diverse community led by members of the School Council on the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee. This told us how important our differences are and that these are what makes the world both an interesting place and helps it to function. We also learnt that understanding our differences benefits us all.

Activities took place in lesson and tutor time to continue this theme forward. Worthy of special note are Mr Roberts tutor group who produced and presented an excellent assembly to all of year 10 on notable diversity champions from history. The DLS department asked students in year 7 and 8 to make scribble posters all about themselves and what made them particularly unique. 8L worked with Mr Norman to create some logos that could be used for Bethany’s ‘Pride’ group with some fantastic results. All pupils in year 7 & 8 took part in a whole day of project based learning on Thursday organised by Mr Beckham. Pupils researched disability sports such as goal ball and then worked in groups to create their own new sport for people with a disability to play.  This was a great chance for pupils to explore what it means to have a physical disability and learn to work in teams.
