"One Day created something truly wonderful in just one day. Children learnt about Black History Month in a creative and interactive way. The children performing enjoyed the day and some of our 'quiet' children came out of their shell! The whole school really loved the performance and have since gone away and researched their own Black History/Diversity project. A great day! Thank you!"
