The art of International Day
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.”
