THE Annunciation Catholic Junior School in north London welcomed representatives from the Premier League this month who visited with the Premier League and Cricket World Cup trophies to celebrate the school’s national diversity competition win.
The children entered the Roar for Diversity competition last year, where they created posters promoting and celebrating the importance of diversity in teams.
Out of thousands of entries from other schools across the country, the Barnet school created the national winning poster.
Following their special visit on July 14, Year 6 student Joseph said: ‘Today felt amazing.
“It was so exciting to see the actual premier league trophy last lifted by Man City at the end of the last premier league.”
He added: “We were all roaring for diversity today and were able to celebrate how we treat everyone fairly at our school and celebrate our different backgrounds. It’s important the world hears this message.”
Mr Doherty, Head of Schools, said of the occasion: ‘We pride ourselves on being a wonderfully diverse school and celebrate the importance of diversity in our everyday lives, particularly when working together as a community.
“Today the children were in awe of the trophies standing proud in our school hall and thoroughly enjoyed the activities they took part in.
“Most importantly, the visit from the Premier League today acted as a powerful reminder after recent events in football of the importance of diversity in football and every aspect of our lives. A big thank you to Miss Attwell, our P.E Lead, who organised the day."
