Celebrating Diversity - Remembering Srebrenica Invitation

Diversity and Cohesion, in partneship with the Univeristy of Bradford, would like to invite you to Supplementary Schools Celebrating Diversity event due to take place on Wednesday 20 July 2016, 5.30pm at the University of Bradford.

Supplementary schools from across the district will join together to take part in celebrating the cultural diversity of Bradford’s community, to strengthen good inter faith relations, increase awareness of different communities in the district, and increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs. 

The event will also mark the 21st anniversary of the genocide that took place in Srebrenica during the Balkans conflict of 1992- 1995, where more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim boys and men were systematically massacred and buried in mass graves. Thousands of women, children and elderly people were forcibly deported and a large number of women were raped. It was the greatest atrocity on European soil since the Second World War. Bosnia was an integrated society which disintegrated.  Genocide is a sombre reminder that it can happen anywhere, unless we learn to respect and appreciate our differences and prevent hatred for the ‘other’. 

Supplementary schools being at the heart of our community, have a key role to play in building a fair, integrated and tolerant society by giving pupils the skills, knowledge and opportunities to learn with, from and about those from different cultures, beliefs and backgrounds and to develop shared values.

Join us in a celebration of our differences. 

The event is open to all schools but only with prior booking. 

For more information about the event, and to register your interest in attending, please contact Javed.Bashir@bradford.gov.uk or call 01274 439385.
