As part of The Great Get Together, staff at East Norfolk Sixth Form College hosted an event for local primary school children.

The first Great Get Together was held last year on the anniversary of Jo Cox MP’s murder.

The EN careers department decided to get involved by bringing together primary age children with sixth form students and also offer them a visit to college. With high school approaching and knowing the children will be meeting lots of new friends it was a good time to promote celebrating difference and bringing people together.

The focus of the day was on fun and celebrating diversity and after an assembly to talk about Jo Cox the children were given tours of the campus by EN students and after lunch took part in sports and drama games on the field.

Jo Cox’s message that ‘we have much more in common than that which divides us’ is a powerful one and the staff felt this was a great message for the youngsters to take to their new high schools. It also gave the year 6s a chance to see what the college was like and encourage them to think about their potential and what they could achieve in high school.
