People are at their best when they can be exactly who they are, and feel confident that they are heard and supported. Everyone deserves to have a chance at being their best selves, and school is the perfect environment to nurture individuals no matter who they are or what they want to be.

School Diversity Week is all about celebrating diversity, finding strengths in difference, learning from each other, and making sure that everyone feels welcome. Through embracing all the things that make us different, we learn new ideas and ways of doing things which is precisely how progress is made.

School should be a nourishing place for everyone, and by taking up this initiative you have. taken a big step to creating an environment where everyone can thrive. I only wish I had something like this when I was at school... it would have made life so much more interesting! I congratulate you all for teaching and celebrating diversity, and encourage you to make sure it goes from strength to strength.
