Discussions in ACAAS may revolve around shared experiences, lessons learned, steps that can be taken, follow-up required, advice, and recommendations. They will also look at islamophobia, anti-black and anti-Asian sentiments within the College community and the role that allies can play.
As with the GSA, part of the role of this group is to give a voice to perceptions, stereotypes, unconscious bias and microaggressions that occur within the College. They also scrutinise the curriculum and the activities programme; dynamics within Houses and between pupils and staff; suggest changes and seek positive solutions.
The Society meets weekly in the Common Room Dining Room, at 4.10pm, for anyone in Year 9 or above. We would love for you to become involved.
There is also a junior wing of ACAAS for pupils in the Lower School who want to become actively involved in promoting inclusive behaviour, attitudes and activities among their peers.
