Diversity Club Jam
The members of Diversity Club were set the challenge of creating a short video that best represented what we do as a collective group. The members had to harness their creativity and imagination to create their interpretation of our club. The results were fantastic, here are some examples…
Calais Clothes Drive
The children in diversity club have been working extremely hard fundraising for a local charity that supports refugees in Calais. Today the children successfully collected loads of very generous donations that go to helping people in desperate need!
The members of Diversity club have been hard at work over the first term, researching information about the current Refugee Crisis in Europe. The children have been investigating the problems that millions of innocent people are facing, in countries like Syria, and how they are trying to find a better life for themselves and their families in Europe. In particular, the Diversity Club members have been focusing on the current crisis in Calais and have been trying to understand why people are so desperate to get to the UK and why people are risking their lives to get here.
Due to the fact that winter is approaching and the weather is going to continue to worsen, the children have decided to organise a ‘Clothes Drive’ for refugees that are stuck in Calais. The Diversity Club Members are asking for any donations of warm clothes, unused jackets or anything people can spare to try and help people in need.
Thursday 26th November- Calais Clothes Drive
The children will be advertising more information about the fundraiser and how people can donate over the coming weeks!
