Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College held our fabulous One World Week at the beginning of October in which we celebrate different cultures, language and diversity, with lots of events going on from European food taster sessions, a “World Photo Booth” for students, Cinema Club in the Learning Resources Centre, and Years 7 and 8 enjoying a “World Culture Day”, a carousel day to learn all about Music, art, sports, geometry, textiles and media from different countries.
Students learnt about the Bristol Bus Boycott, African Theatre the Paralympics as well as getting to make tasty crepes and being introduced to the Greek and Welsh languages.
A highlight of the week was a visit from Lucy who is deaf and her hearing dog ‘Cazzie’ during a session on British Sign Language. Cazzie is specifically trained to be Lucy’s ears and nudges her when the doorbell rings, the students really enjoyed meeting Lucy and Cazzie.
“It was great because we learnt all about different cultures”, “It was an amazing opportunity to learn some new languages”, and “I especially liked the Paralympics and meeting the hearing dog” were some of the positive comments students gave about their experiences during One World Week.
