Black History Month
This year, Whitmore High School honoured Black History Month with the theme ‘Celebrating Diversity’.
During October, students from every year group were able to engage with our celebration of diversity each morning during their morning registration. They were presented with facts and general knowledge questions about a country or Black person of significance, such as Stormzy; the first black solo artist on the pyramid stage at Glastonbury and Sara Forbes Bonetta; the goddaughter of Queen Victoria.
Students were given the opportunity to participate in a school-wide Art competition based on our theme ‘Celebrating Diversity’. Students from various year groups entered the competition with amazing art work which represented their interpretation of our theme. Congratulations to the winners;
1ST place Allison - 9PAN 2nd place Krishanth- 9RSK 3rd place Katha - 11SEZ
Year 7 and 8 students entered a treasure hunt competition, finding clues based on facts about a country or Black person of significance. Well done to the winners who completed the treasure hunt and uncovered the missing word;

Our Year 11s were excited to take the lead on planning and delivering an assembly. Students did an exceptional job of putting together and brilliantly presenting the assembly, which reflected their history and informed their peers. Students highlighted the importance of ‘Celebrating Diversity’ within Whitmore and the wider community. Thank you and well done to the following students;
