LGBT HISTORY MONTH

The month of February is LGBT history month.  LGBT history month is an annual celebration that provides education and insight into the issues that the LGBT+ community faces.  The aim of LGBT history month is to primarily teach young people about the history of the gay rights movement and to promote an inclusive society.  If you support equal rights for all and want to help make our school a fully inclusive society, come along to the LGBT+ and Allies group every Wednesday lunchtime in room 28.
