Celebrate in school the Gypsy Roma and Traveller History Month 2021(GRTHM 2021)

Last month, we organised a workshop for the Roma children to celebrate the GRTHM 2021 in Smithdown Primary School. The work started with a staff awareness training were the Roma history and culture was presented. We receive positive feedback and J. Ireland, the family liaison from the school say "It is surprise to see how little we know, but today we receive great information to know better our Roma pupils  and it will help us to interact more with the parents"


Next, we work with the Roma children for 3 weeks were they learn about their history and culture. Our aim was to bring together the Roma children that come from different countries like Romania, Czech and Slovakia to celebrate together their culture. All their work was shared last week in the school. assembly.
