The art of In­ter­na­tional Day

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

SCHOOL­CHILD­REN took part in an In­ter­na­tional Day re­cently.

Young­sters at Chal­font St Peter Church of Eng­land Academy, Penn Road, held a day where chil­dren through­out the school dressed in na­tional cos­tume or the colours of the flag of a coun­try they had re­searched.

Along with this an art ex­hi­bi­tion was dis­played in the school hall for chil­dren and par­ents to view dur­ing the Arts Evening which took place later, at which par­ents were in­vited to bring dishes of food from all around the world.

The chil­dren wel­comed par­ents with ‘hello’ in mul­ti­ple lan­guages be­fore per­form­ing songs re­lat­ing to the in­ter­na­tional theme, and chil­dren re­cited French po­etry and the staff played African drums.

El­iz­a­beth Un­der­wood, head­teacher, said: “We have fo­cused on peace and equal­ity dur­ing the year and so the In­ter­na­tional Day was a great oc­ca­sion to con­sol­i­date our think­ing, com­pare and con­trast our sim­i­lar­i­ties and dif­fer­ences.

“The evening was a re­ally fan­tas­tic event where we could celebrate the wide range of foods and dif­fer­ent cul­tures but also be united in our de­sire for peace in the world.”

DRESS­ING UP: Chal­font St Peter CofE Academy held a spe­cial in­ter­na­tional day and art fes­ti­val for pupils
