The Grimsby Institute recently held their annual Diversity Week celebrations across their Grimsby campuses with learners and staff joining in the celebrations of what it means to be different.
Eighteen-year-old Sarah Lulu Riley, who is studying Level 1 Childcare at Lincolnshire Regional College, got an extra special surprise, when she was told that her logo design had been chosen as the Group’s official ‘Equality and Diversity’ logo.
Sarah was presented with a special framed copy of the new poster, and Sarah’s entire group were given Diversity Week t-shirts by Sue Middlehurst and Margaret Woodcock, Director of FE Quality.
Sarah said: “I feel famous. I had absolutely no idea when we came to the Institute that my logo was being used for Diversity Week, and then all of a sudden I saw posters up on the wall and then I’ve been presented with these gifts, it’s amazing. “I wanted to design something that would represent every person from every culture, so came up with the idea of one face that was divided up to represent everybody, I can’t believe it’s been chosen.
“I chose to study at LRC because they offered exactly what I wanted, and I get on so well with my group and tutors, it’s like one big happy family. Lincolnshire Regional College is such a happy environment, nothing is too much trouble for the tutors and I love it.”
Care’s Curriculum Leader, Shaesta Butt, was then presented with the Diversity Week trophy for all the work the department does to promote the week and Equality and Diversity throughout the year.
