Houghton Regis Academy

World Afro Day

Staff and students take part in World Afro Day.

Today at Houghton Regis Academy all students and staff took part in 'World Afro Day.' Celebrating its 5th anniversary, 'World Afro Day' is a global day of change, education and celebration of Afro hair. 

During the afternoon the whole school signed up to the Big Hair Assembly. The live assembly was shown to all students of HRA and thousands of young people around the world. Throughout the day students were educated on how we can change negative attitudes towards Afro hair into positive inclusion. 

A big thank you to Mrs Williams for organising the day.
