The challenge was to develop an information sheet celebrating successful LGBT individuals.

Mr Panter, Pastoral Assistant, asked that the entries should discuss the chose person's early life, their achievements and any obstacles they had to overcome to achieve their goals.

Students and staff were encouraged to include lots of colour and pictures to attract attention, as the winners would be displayed in the pastoral office.

“We received a great number of fantastic entries from both staff and students celebrating the achievements of LGBT individuals.”

Entries featured Laverne Cox (an American actress and LGBT advocate),  Michael Sam (the first openly gay NFL star) and RuPaul (an American drag queen, actor, model, singer, songwriter, television personality, and author)
