Black History Day
On 10th November 2016, we celebrated Black History Day. This is such an important day because even though we understand being fair and inclusive at Edna G. Olds, there are still people out there who discriminate against people because of their skin tone or where they come from. We like to think that nowadays people are a lot kinder but it's really important to remind ourselves to be fair and kind and make sure that everything is equal.
We all looked at different aspects of black history. In our class, we learned about the Trade Triangle and in Class 3, the children found out all about Tommie Smith and famous black athletes.
