Headmaster’s Assembly

This week’s Headmaster’s Assembly focused on the hugely important subject of racism, the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. The accompanying hymn was the original recording of ‘The Ink is Black’ composed by David Arkin and Earl Robinson and sung by Peter Seeger. Inspired by the 1954 US Supreme Court decision to outlaw racial segregation in public schools, it says:

“A child is black, a child is white,
The whole world looks upon the sight, upon the sight;
For very well the whole world knows,
This is the way that freedom grows, freedom grows.”

We are proud that our pupils are taught kindness and compassion from a young age, and that they will take these values with them into the world.
