School Diversity Week was celebrated by schools and colleges across the UK last week. In excess of 350,000 people were involved in the event, including some high profile with the colourful flower arch outside of 10 Downing Street.

QEGS held a non-uniform day on Friday 5th July raising £271.45 for #JustLikeUs and £271.45 towards the School’s Uganda Project. The non-uniform donations, sale of shoelaces, ribbons and other donations totalled £542.90. It was interesting to discuss diversity in PSHEE lessons during the week, considering the diverse community at QEGS, in Blackburn and in the UK, reflecting the way we can embrace differences to learn more about people we live alongside and understand different cultures, religions and specific beliefs.

We would like to thank all the pupils, students, staff, and especially parents and carers for their support with the event.
