Pupils go around the world in a day
School celebrates diversity with international-themed celebration
Pupils were encouraged to dress in the national costume, or colours of the flag, from the country they identify with.
They spent the day learning about different cultures as well as being taught a dragon dance from China.
In the evening parents were invited along to sample food provided by parents from all the different countries represented.
There were 22 stalls from countries including Jamaica, Japan, Slovakia, Poland and Italy as well as England, Wales and Ireland.
Mr Holdsworth, headteacher at the school in Amersham Road, Chesham Bois, said: “Interna- tional Day has proved so popular with pupils and their parents that it is now firmly on our annual events calendar.
“We are very proud of the different cultures that are represented at our school and this event gives us the opportunity to celebrate these and to learn from each other.”
Two hampers, which included items donated by parents, were raffled during the event, which had been organised by the school’s PTA.
The event took place on Thursday April 26.
