On Thursday 22 June, John Chilton School joined in with family, friends, Governors and representatives from the Windrush Generation to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the arrival of Windrush. We paid tribute to the contributions and sacrifices of the British Caribbean communities who arrived in Britain 75 years ago

Pupils and staff also got a chance to prepare a Caribbean-inspired dish for the event.  We had cakes, patties, drinks, coleslaw, chicken, rice, fritters and much more. We had map reading, role play, dominoes, Caribbean poetry and music.

Millie Mensah, author of ‘Migration’, provided the pupils with a multi-sensory walk through the life journeys of the Windrush Generation.  Students smelt, felt, touched, listened to and looked through a variety of objects to connect with the Windrush experience.

All this learning culminated in a whole-school celebration of the Windrush Generation, where our community came together to enjoy the  music of a steel pan duo, listened to stories from members of the Windrush Generation and their Descendents.

There were a range of exciting activities that took place for pupils over 3 weeks , starting with an Ealing Borough art competition, where we proudly take all 3 places with our artistic entries from Whales (1st), P3 Red (2nd) and Poppies (3rd)
