Harrogate College celebrated Equality, Diversity and Citizenship week last week, running a variety of activities including a Bake Off, a Market Place and the Human Race.
The launch of the week in our College Calendar was opened by the principal and celebrated student talent by running an ‘H Factor’ event, with superb solo performances from Progression and Employability student Penny Bowles and Level 3 BTEC Sport student Connaire McNulty, as the launch of a fantastic week of creative and inspiring in house events.
Former Chelsea defender Ken Monkou visited the launch and inspired students with a talk about their rights under Equality and Diversity Law, along with their responsibilities as members of society to treat everyone fairly and with respect.
Born in Suriname but raised in the Netherlands, Monkou went onto appear 198 times in the Premier League and win Player of the Year whilst at Chelsea FC.
The Market Place took place on Tuesday and was well supported by exhibitors and visiting students, with two members of staff giving a talk on living in the UK as a second country.
The Bake Off was hosted by Harrogate with three brave members of staff ‘blind’ tasting the produce, followed by the Human Race which is now in its fourth year.
Thank you to everyone for planning the events and supporting Equality, Diversity and Citizenship week by getting involved in the many activities that were taking place.
