Happy BME Culture Day!

The Student Union (SU) hosted an amazing afternoon of activity last week to celebrate the incredible and diverse College community.

Students were encouraged to wear traditional clothes with the Food Hall serving a menu of speciality dishes from around the globe and the College’s courtyard came alive as students danced together to music from around the world.

SU Vice President Anthony Nzegbuna helped to organise the event. He said: “Today was about the celebration of the ethnic minorities, recognising our roots and showing how proud we are of our diversity and man did we did we show off.

“I think I speak on behalf of everyone who attended that we are proud of being members of the ethnic minorities and we will continue to sing and dance about our traditions shamelessly."

Level 3 business student, Funmi Abidemu is originally from Nigeria and came to the UK three years ago. She said: “I think the College does a great job at being culturally sensitive but there’s always more that can be done so having these events really highlights and celebrates our differences and it’s been really good.”

Saffa Kaeel, Level 3 Health & Social Care student, said: “Days like this are important as we can celebrate our roots. It’s nice to see different cultures and religions coming together and makes me feel proud to be a part of it.”

Fellow Level 3 Health & Social Care learner, Aminah Hussain, added: “We don’t usually wear traditional clothes to college so our teacher made us stand in front of the class and do a twirl which was really funny.

“I definitely feel more comfortable about wearing Pakistani clothes to college now and think we should do more events like this in the future.”

Stafford College students also celebrated the day which was held as part of NSCG’s Equality & Diversity Week and saw students at both campuses take part in a range of celebrations and activities across the course of the week.

Thank you to everyone who got involved today to help showcase the fantastic college community we have here at NSCG.
