We had a very successful intercultural week last week with lots of activities and events happening in the school. On Monday we had our Day of Travel where children had the opportunity to visit a number of classrooms and learn about different sports played in counties all over the world such as Japan, China Turkey and many more.
Throughout the week , classes were learning about different cultures through art , cooking and music . We had some excellent talks from parents and finished off the week with a food fair on Friday . Thank you to all the parents who contributed in any way. We had great fun and are looking forward to next year!!
