Stockport Academy Celebrates Culture Week

Our school celebrated the diversity among our students and staff in our first ever Culture Week.

The week was filled with exciting activities – students could have their henna done during break and lunchtimes, food from around the globe was available in the Refectory for students to sample, and students moved through the corridors between lessons to music from different cultural backgrounds.  

Celebrations ended with Culture Day on the Friday, where students were invited to wear traditional dress for the day, and Year 11 students did a fantastic job of showcasing their own ethnic heritage by sharing food, stories and activities with other year groups. The nations represented were Scotland, France, Philippines, Pakistan, Sudan, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Jamaica, Liberia, India and Bangladesh. 

Our Atrium was also decorated with flags from all of the countries and nations that our students represent – these will now be a permanent fixture to celebrate our diverse student community.  

 All money raised during the week will be donated to the British Red Cross’ Ukraine campaign. 

Mrs Milnes, who organised the week along with our Prefectural Board, said: "It has been amazing to recognise the different cultures and backgrounds that all come together to form our Stockport Academy family. 

"Tolerance and Respect are key values that we look to instil in all of our students as part of our Education with Character, and understanding how we are all different and yet in so many ways still the same is an important part of that. Our first ever Culture Week was a huge success and we look forward to repeating it again next year."
