Celebration of Diversity

Posted on: 10/02/2017

GTS pupils took part in a Celebration of Diversity event in front of a packed out paying audience at The Plough Arts Centre on Friday 3rd February.  The performance also counted as a part of the RSL Level 2 Performance Arts Course. 

GTS pupils presented thoughtful and relevant performance poetry written by Syrian refugees about their experiences. The evening was a mixture of performance, singing and talks celebrating our human differences and promoting community cohesion, the objective being to raise positive awareness and acceptance of the many individuals and communities who live in our area. 

Naomi Chunilal, Manager at North Devon Sunrise CIC, thanked all the students for pulling together an uplifting and powerful performance at the Celebration of Diversity event. 

Naomi said, "It was wonderful to see the young people engaging in these poems in a thought provoking and moving way."  People commented to the organisers that they found that their performances "Brought to life some of the issues faced by refugee people at this current time."
