Flying the Flag for Diversity

Members of our School community came together on the playing fields to create a rainbow flag, marking the end of June’s Pride Month.

Led by the Diversity Group, which meets on Tuesday lunchtimes, Miss Hill and Mr Murphy, the school was also joined by Matthew Kenworthy Gomes, Chief Executive Officer of Cornwall Pride. Matthew spoke of the importance of tolerance, acceptance and compassion, both with regard to others and to ourselves.

The rainbow flag became a symbol of the LGBTQ+ community in 1978 and is widely recognised as a symbol of community and inclusion. Today, our pupils and staff donned colours from the flag to create our own tribute, with a fitting chant of “oggy oggy oggy, pride pride pride” to mark the occasion.
