St Anthony’s School for Girls has celebrated cultures from all around the world with a Multicultural Week.
The Golders Green based school was awash with colour as it hosted a week full of themed activities, encouraging pupils to learn about the different traditions and languages in their school community.
Each girl proudly created a poster for display in the school, including the flag which represents their nationality, a photograph of their family and a short caption which they wrote about their home country.
Pupils participated in a range of educational activities to explore the delights of each other’s nationalities, including tucking into a French-themed breakfast, displaying their artistic skills with Aboriginal painting and English pressed flower craft, and taking part in Samba, Italian cookery and Turkish dancing workshops.
The week culminated in a multicultural celebration. Families joined the girls bringing along dishes of food representative of their nationalities, while the children dressed in traditional costume or the colours of their home country. The pupils entertained attendees by presenting their samba dance, and the reception children sang a song in Spanish.
Headteacher Laura Flannery comments: “We are delighted to see our pupils explore and embrace the many cultures within our school community, by engaging in an array of cultural and languages focused activities. Their performances at the multicultural celebration were beautiful and we are incredibly proud.”
