- GRT History Months has been celebrated every June since 2001.
- An opportunity to raise awareness, explore the history, culture and language of GRT communities.
- Help to challenge myths, tackle prejudice and offer balanced debate.
Ensure that Traveller cultures and histories are celebrated and reflected throughout the curriculum and the school calendar of celebrations. Celebrate GRT History Month every year, whether the school has Travelling families attending or not.
EMTAS have created a number of specific newsletters to promote schools’ engagement with Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month. All EMTAS newsletters can be found here and a number of resources are collated in our GRT History Month resources page
