Black History Month
A message from Ms Fraser and Mr Swaby
Every Tuesday lunchtime this term the Humanities department's Black History/Black Lives Matter group invites you to join them in DF06 to learn more about the long-standing but often under-acknowledged contribution of Black people to a whole range of fields and sectors – maths, sciences, the performing arts are just three of the areas we will be talking about.
Thank you to one of GCA's governors, Jasmyn Ross, for the delicious cakes you see here.
