Head of School Cesaire (St Giles, Upper Sixth) led Chapel service this week and talked inspiringly about Black History Month.
Embracing the Black History Month slogan ‘Proud to be,’ Cesaire focused his speech proudly on hair. The Upper Sixth student and talented rugby player described the importance and significance of hair among the black community, from locks to afros to twists. He explained that his own hair is a mark of his individuality and it is a way to express himself. Through expressing ourselves, we can love ourselves, and love one another. He relayed a powerful message.
All Year groups attended the services in their Houses, and everyone listened intently to Cesaire and the important words he spoke. As a whole school we look forward to celebrating Black History not just in the month of October but throughout the year.
