Throughout the academic year at Phoenix Arch there are many opportunities to celebrate special events as a community. In October we celebrated Black History Month with cookery, capoeira, storytelling workshops and interviews with an elder from the Caribbean. During the same month we had a vegetable planting event to celebrate the completion of our classes’ allotments. At Christmas our school play celebrated the rich community that we are a part of, by showing how Christmas is celebrated in the different countries that our pupils originate from. Occasions like this promote community cohesion within the school and form links outside.
