The Black History Month show on Thursday 11 October was an incredible display of the talent amongst Olavians throughout the school with music, poetry, celebration and dance. The night opened with a powerful performance of Happy Days,and proceeded with a stunning variety of poetry, monologues, singing, and dancing. During the interval, guests were provided with a selection of African and Caribbean cuisine. Additionally, the guests had the opportunity to purchase the inaugural copy of the completely student produced Black History Month magazine, which itself contains a vast array of articles. These articles were centred on a multitude of topics; such as the Windrush generation, the Ashanti Empire, and the Haitian revolution. The event concluded with an performance of Shackles mixed with Champion and received much acclaim from guests commenting that it was “an extremely enlightening event” and that “the talent was amazing”.
Congratulations to all students who took part.
