Friday May 20th 2022 saw Bury College mark #WorldDayForCulturalDiversity as we celebrated our diverse and multicultural staff and student population.

Diversity is about recognising, valuing, and celebrating the differences of the people at Bury College including staff, learners, visitors, and the extended communities.

We encouraged students to wear cultural attire for the day or clothes that represent the colours of their flag. There was also food shared and a DJ to help create a real carnival atmosphere.

We also had our Performing Arts students perform and sign ‘This Is Me’ and ‘Fame’ as part of the day. This was followed by an incredible range of dances from first-year student Kazim Ali.


Another highlight of #WorldDayForCulturalDiversity

Check out Kazim entertaining staff and students with some incredible dance moves!

Samantha Pedley, Pastoral Manager at Bury College said: “It was amazing to see how culturally diverse our college is, and how students came together in unity to celebrate World Day for Cultural Diversity.”

Councillor Ummrana Farooq, Deputy Cabinet Member for Communities at Bury Council was in attendance. She said: “I had such a lovely afternoon visiting Bury College as part of World Day for Cultural Diversity. It was a great way for all the students to get together and celebrate their culture.”

Bury College is proud to be a diverse community, supporting students with backgrounds from all over the world. A small cross section of this diverse student population can be found in our Level 1 Business Studies class, who put on a great display showcasing their own range of culture.
