Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Miss Scott, reflects on a busy Michaelmas term for the Pride Group, Feminist Society and BAME Society:
The Pride Group, Feminist Society and BAME Society have had an exciting first term at Norwich School.
The Pride Group has got off to a great start and been instrumental in introducing pronoun badges to staff and pupils and helping with Rainbow Laces Day. They look forward to celebrating LGBT+ history month throughout February with displays, an assembly, and a potential fundraiser.
BAME Society had a very active Michaelmas term. The society has been involved with several events including Diwali, a film night run with the Amnesty Group, as well as a very successful cultural food fair. The society has exciting plans for the rest of this term and beyond including another film night, a collaborative variety evening run alongside Amnesty, and of course another cultural food fair.
Last term the Feminist Society hosted a 'Reclaim the Night' vigil in the Cathedral Close, which looked to raise awareness and show respect for victims of gender-based violence. They collaborated with the School’s Writers Bloc Society to create poetry for the vigil and did excellent work in engaging the school community. They are now creating a short publication showcasing the poetry and work that went into organising this impactful event, and looking into ideas for International Women’s Day.
