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.
