    Published 26/11/20

    Year 11s were invited to listen to a talk by Mr Francesco Guerrera, a renowned finance and business journalist and Head of EMEA at Dow Jones Media Group. Francesco was able to give our students insight into not only his career but also the world of media and journalism, giving specific advice for our students including:

    • Failing to prepare is preparing to fail
    • Always be authentically yourself
    • Be kind and helpful to others as you progress in your career
    • There are no silly questions in journalism
    • Often the simplest questions get the most detailed and interesting responses

  • BHM Library Poem Competition

    Published 18/11/20
    To celebrate the Black History Month SMM Library has run across the whole school Poetry Competition inspired by Black History.

    Students had an opportunity to research, dig deep and look closer into history through attending a number of Poetry Workshops. These amazing poems will be featured as part of our student library collection of poems where all members of school community will have a chance to read them. Among many wonderful works from pupils, we are pleased to announce that the following poems;

    I am the black child By Deborah Lawal

    I am special,

    Ridicule cannot sway me.

    I am strong,

    Obstacles cannot stop me.

    I hold my head high proudly proclaiming my uniqueness,

    I hold my pace, continuing forward through diversity.

    I am proud of my culture and my heritage,

    I am confident that I can achieve my every goal

    I am confident I can become what I want to be,

    I am the black child I am 

    child of God!

    But We Are Still Black By Pazel Akoto

    When they humiliate me in public

    I am who I am.

    When they say I can’t do it

    I strive.

    When people say I am dumb

    I work.

    When they tell me to give up

    I stay.

    They jail me for no reason

    They sell me and buy me to work as slaves

    They beat me and kill me because I’m tired

     

    They knelt on my neck

    They killed me in front of my Nephew

    They shot me unarmed…

    BUT WE ARE STILL

    BLACK

    My Black is Beautiful By Jinelle Nyako

    My Black Is Beautiful

    From the colour of my skin to the texture of my hair.

    To the stride of my gait

    To the glow of my skin.

    My Black Is Beautiful 

    It cannot be denied 

    It will not be contained it will only be defined by me.

    When I look in the mirror my soul cries out 

    My Black Is Beautiful

    Black Lives Matter 

    How many more hearts do we need to shatter?

    Before we turn the page and start a new chapter

    Slavery was abolished they printed that in the news,

    But the headlines we read show that is far from the truth 

    Because people are still captive to the colour of their skin 

    Of which none of us can choose. 

     

    All are outstanding and therefore were selected as the winners of the 2020 BHM competition. 

    Well done.
