At Penistone Grammar School, we believe that building cultural capital in our students is crucial for their personal and academic development. Our extracurricular programs and trips allow students to explore new cultures and interests, while also broadening their perspectives and knowledge.
One way we build cultural capital in our students is through our Film and Debate Club. The club provides a platform for students to explore different cultures and perspectives through the lens of film and discuss important topics with their peers. Additionally, our Book Club encourages students to read literature from different cultures, explore different time periods and gain a deeper understanding of the world around them.
Our School Newspaper is another example of how we build cultural capital in our students. The newspaper provides students with an opportunity to report on events happening in their local and global community, while learning important skills such as writing and journalism.
We also offer rewards trips such as Ice Sheffield and Winter Wonderland, which provide students with a fun way to explore new cultures and experiences. Additionally, our foreign language trips to Madrid and Amiens offer students an opportunity to immerse themselves in a new culture and use their language skills in real-life situations. These trips help our students to gain cultural awareness and appreciation, develop an understanding of different customs, and gain the ability to communicate in another language.
Finally, our trips to the Good Food Show and Ski Trip offer students a chance to explore different cultures and learn about their traditions and customs through their food and activities. It will help our students to gain an appreciation for different cultures and understand the importance of cultural diversity.
Therefore, we understand the importance of building cultural capital in our students and provide them with numerous opportunities to explore new cultures, perspectives and gain a deeper understanding of the world around them.
