Black History Month at Eltham College

Eltham College is celebrating Black History Month by focusing on Black British History, amplifying stories of positivity, progression, and potential.

It is also recognised that meaningful change requires a broad effort across the Eltham College community which is why as a school and community we are conscious to speak to the future and communicate how we can effect positive change.

Over the following weeks we have informative and inspiring talks that will be delivered by students and guests to optimise and encourage school wide interest by celebrating the diversity of our community.
