Commemoration, Celebration and Education Events

We believe it is important to recognise and acknowledge the wealth of local, national and international events and awareness days to raise our students’ knowledge and understanding and develop their appreciation of issues, culture and heritage etc. Our academy schedules our approach to ensuring this enhancement aspect of the curriculum raises students’ awareness and engagement with the issues of their world and appreciation of their heritage.
