Sixth form students’ film celebrates cultural diversity
A group of six sixth form students, led by Rania Abdulghani and Ellie Pink, produced an engaging and heartwarming video on the cultural diversity in Richmond Sixth Form College for use as an assembly. The recording featured the six students talking about their cultural heritages; how their daily lives are impacted, what they like most about their culture and why their families settled in the UK.

Rania and Ellie are members of a whole school working party which was established in the summer to look at issues relating to diversity and equality and to ensure that Richmond School and Sixth Form College is a tolerant, understanding and inclusive place to work and study. Their assembly video beautifully showcased and celebrated cultural diversity and was extremely well received by staff and students alike.
Sally Byrom, Lead Learning Manager, said: “I was so impressed by the independence and creativity of the students involved. They tackled the project with great sensitivity and put together a fantastic video. All the students spoke so openly, honestly and fondly about their cultural heritages – it was an extremely moving piece!”
Thank you to the students involved: Rania Abdulghani, Ellie Pink, Sujan Pariyar, Uchenna Anyadiegwu, Katie Hyman and Usha Rai.
