On Monday 29th May 2017 twenty two students from Greenfield Community College attended Durham Pride which was held at ‘The Sands’ in Durham City Centre. The students were very keen to take part because they believe that it is important to raise awareness and educate the public about the issues and difficulties affecting the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people in and around County Durham.

Students from both the Sunnydale Campus and Aycliffe site spent weeks designing and creating fabulous banners for the occasion which were proudly displayed on the day. The LGBT+ colours had special meaning as they represent the flags for the different identities.

“Greenfield are strongly committed to celebrating Equality and Diversity and we are very proud of our students who gave up a day of their holidays to support this cause” said Assistant Headteacher Dianne Davis.
