Black History Month Poster Competition

To mark Black History Month, the History and Art departments organised a poster competition.

The two departments were bowled over by the response. Abbey students from all age groups produced stunning posters, in a myriad of styles, which focused on a wide range of people from different walks of life. The posters are now on display at both the Senior and Junior School. All students who entered deserve commendation for the thoughtful messages they crafted and the high level of creativity that they showed.
