Students celebrated Black History Month.


Townley Grammar School celebrated by inviting Canadian Grammy Award nominated artist Jonathan Emile to the school.

The Jamaican Canadian singer, poet, musician and entrepreneur from Montreal, Quebec, performed his Songs of Freedom workshop to Year 7 and 9 students.

He performed to more than 400 pupils.

It was Mr Emile’s second trip to the school and he was delighted to bring their Black History Month celebrations to life once again.

He said: “It is always an honour and a pleasure to perform for Townley students, they are fantastic girls and real change makers!”

Mr Fabian de Fabiani, the organiser of the event and House Leader said: “It is testament to Townley’s national and international reputation that we can organise events such as Jonathan’s today; our values and vision are symbolised by this event.”
