Saris, henna and a lit­tle Gu­jarati

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

SCHOOL­CHILD­REN have held their sec­ond cul­ture day as part of a pro­gramme to help them un­der­stand the di­verse na­tion­al­i­ties rep­re­sented at their school. Pupils at High­worth School in Ash­ford cel­e­brated In­dian cul­ture with a themed lunch and ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised by Year 12 stu­dents re­splen­dent in tra­di­tional dress. Dur­ing the day, chil­dren had in­tri­cate pat­terns painted onto hands with henna. Pupils were shown how to put on a sari and got to taste tra­di­tional dishes and even learn a lit­tle Gu­jarati.
