A video of police shooting Jacob Blake as he leaned into his vehicle, apparently while three of his children were sitting in it, was circulated widely on social media and sparked protests in the town of Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA. The 29-year-old black man was shot 7 times in his back. He remains in hospital in a serious condition, and his parents say he has life changing injuries as a result of this brutal assault.
Kenosha's protests are the latest in a series of ongoing demonstrations against police brutality and racism since 25 May when George Floyd died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for nine minutes.
As our students return next week, we know that the education they receive is important in a world where we continually have to challenge racist ideology. We stand together in strength, unity and faith, we will not be silenced, we will call out hatred and racism and it will not be tolerated in our school.
