DLD College London recently hosted ‘International Day’, celebrating the diversity within the school community.
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, many of the 60 nationalities within the Westminster Bridge-based college were represented by a carousel of vibrant stalls in the college atrium.
Boarding students shared stories of their home countries, their cultures and gave an insight into some of the traditions, with many individuals showcasing unique items and national food for an authentic experience. The DLD cohort enjoyed sampling the assortment of food including dried caterpillars from Thailand, banana coffee from Laos, and Nigerian dried plantain chips, favoured by boarding dog, Sasha.
Assistant Principal (Head of Boarding) John Taylor commented: “There was a real buzz in the air and it was wonderful to see our students pave the way for the next generation in global understanding and acceptance of other cultures. The day very much emphasised that we are connected by our universal humanity and we look forward to continuing to provide opportunities to celebrate diversity within our college community.”
