The world descended on St Helens College this week for its annual Colours of the World, equality and diversity event.

The event saw staff and students from different curriculum areas produce exhibitions to represent twelve countries from around the world including India, Spain, Japan, China, India, Germany, Thailand, USA and Australia to name but a few. The exhibitions displayed food, drinks, clothing, currency, photos and other objects of interest from that country. Some students also donned traditional dress.

In addition to a buzz around the college, there was also a fierce sense of competition in the air, with each subject area vying for the ‘Best Exhibition Stand’ award. Judging was undertaken by St Helens RLFC players, Jack Owens, Calvin Wellington and Regan Grace who chose India by the Hair and Beauty department as the winner followed by America in 2nd place and China in 3rd place, respectively.

Jeanine Williams, HR Manager said: “The Colours of the World event is both an enjoyable and rewarding event for all involved. We place great importance on equality and diversity amongst our staff and students. We want to ensure that we foster an inclusive environment where everyone is treated fairly and has equal access to learning opportunities, enabling them to reach their full potential.”
