Bang­ing the drum for cul­ture

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

PUPILS soaked up a host of cul­tures dur­ing a spe­cial day to broaden their un­der­stand­ing of the world.

The Deep­ings School, in Deep­ing St James, held its an­nual cul­ture day, with dif­fer­ent year groups dis­cussing a range of sub­jects.

There were themes ex­plor­ing dis­abil­ity and re­li­gion, but there was also a chance to try out Scot­tish and Salsa danc­ing, learn about Is­lamic cul­ture and sam­ple Chi­nese food.

Co-or­di­na­tor Dawne Pearson said: “It is al­ways so re­ward­ing to see the pupils par­tic­i­pat­ing in ac­tiv­i­ties and gain­ing so much from the day, which then en­riches their day to day learn­ing and liv­ing.”
