Pride Week 2022
6 May 2022
During the week commencing 2nd May, we celebrated Pride Week. Soc(I)ety, the Gay-Straight Alliance at Gresham’s, organised for a variety of events to take place throughout the week. The Pride flag was flying on top of Chapel and the CFB was decorated in a Pride theme, whilst the catering team made some Pride-themed food. On Wednesday, we celebrated Be Yourself Day, which saw pupils enjoying a Home Clothes Day and Soc(I)ety raised money for the Trevor Project, a charity which is focused on suicide prevention and mental health awareness among LGBTQ+ youth. Soc(I)ety also gave a chapel presentation, speaking about significant historical and contemporary figures in the LGBTQ+ community.
Furthermore, Chapel was open until 10pm during the week, as a place to go if pupils needed a few moments to relax, unwind and reflect. Soc(I)ety worked with Mr Towson to create a stunning light display inside the building, which was combined with soothing Gregorian Chant to produce a calm oasis at the centre of our school.
