As a College we are united in the global outrage at the murder of Muslims whilst they gathered as a community on Friday last week in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The inherent equal regard for all people is a high value for us here at Hereford Sixth Form College so, it is particularly difficult when a specific group is targeted because of, in this instance, their religious beliefs and their immigrant status.

Staff and students will be building a memorial this week and remembering again what unites us, rather than what divides us. Our deepest condolences to the Muslim community in Christchurch, and all their loved ones.
