‘We are all born FREE’ say students at our Durham Schools Showcase May 21st
Students from primary and secondary schools across Durham County participated in our musical and uplifting showcase on 21st May at The Assembly Rooms Theatre in Durham to show their commitment to equality, including against LGBT+ discrimination. Students of all ages sang songs from our PRIDE in Primary and Secondary Education resources, read poetry and impressed everyone with their covers of Cyndi Lauper’s True Colours, Walking on Sunshine and much, much more!
Schools performing were Shotton Hall Academy, Etherley Lane Primary, Greenfield Community College, Hamsterley Primary and Howletch Primary. Check out more lovely images on our twitter feed @educatecelebrat

Educate & Celebrate gives teachers the confidence and resources to challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia by engaging students, staff, parents and governors in an inclusive LGBT curriculum.
The approaches used in ‘Educate & Celebrate’ have been recognised by Ofsted as ‘best practice’ for taking a whole-school approach to tackling homophobic bullying and ingrained attitudes in our schools ‘This approach has been highly successful‘ Ofsted February 2012.
