In September 2020, we asked families to share their Windrush Stories with us. We were overwhelmed by the response and during Black History Month in October 2020, classes around the school were fascinated with the stories that they heard from the family members of pupils at St. Andrew's.
Do you have a family member who came to Britain from the Caribbean as part of the Windrush generation? Is this family member willing to share their experiences with our children? If so, we kindly ask that they document their story by making a short video which we will then use in class and on the school website. Please email your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org
