In Pictures: Our Great Get Together!

19 June 2017

The Great Get Together is a nationwide, neighbourhood celebration which was held over the 16th-18th June. It was inspired by MP Jo Cox, who was killed on June 16th last year. Her famous quote “We are far more united and have far more in common than which divides us” was the key message behind this event, and the basis of a series of assemblies on recent events in London and Manchester. 

β€œWe will get together to send our message that we promote tolerance for everyone, regardless of background, sex and religion.” the invite read. Many others across the UK joined together over the weekend to celebrate support and unity within the communities.

Staff and students brought picnic blankets, food, stories and smiles and used these to get to know each other a bit more. It was a fantastic event enjoyed by all – as you can see from the photos!
