After the success of Black History Month in October, Cedar Mount recently celebrated Asian History Month. Gorton MP Afzal Khan came in to speak to students, there were house competitions, current affairs activities for form time and lessons relating to the theme. For example, in Y7/8 in Music the students learned about classical Indian music, in Dance they put together Bhangra and Bollywood routines and in RS they learned about Malala.
Miss Singh opened a pop up shop selling home- made Asian food/sweets and raised money for Islamic Relief and Khalsa aid.
Staff and students came in traditional dress and in the library Miss Bachelor put together a collection of fiction books by Asian writers and stories featuring Asian characters & places – plus a selection of non-fiction on Asian countries. Staff also decorated their display and notice boards. Everyone made a huge effort.
