October is a month for celebrating Black History. At Erdington Academy we marked the month through a celebratory event hosted by staff and students. We are fortunate enough to have a community of students, staff and families from rich and diverse backgrounds.
During the evening, Miss. Folkes (food teacher) and her team of staff cooked up tasty Carribbean and Asian food to be enjoyed. To compliment this, Mr.Wheatley (Head of Music) and Mr. Houghton (Music teacher) ran samba drumming workshops. Mr. Daniel (Head of Art) put on an excellent display of artwork competition entries and the English department showcased a range of thought provoking poems written by the students. I’d like to thanks all the staff, students and families that contributed to a fun and thoughtful evening.
It’s been some time since we’ve been able to come together as a community but we hope this is the start of future cultural events at Erdington Academy.
