COWES PRIMARY CELEBRATES SCHOOL’S DIVERSITY WITH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL DAY

Traditional CostumesCowes Primary School recently held its annual International Day, sharing the diversity of cultures, food, music and costumes within the school community. 

The event was an opportunity to admire the children’s work, sample international foods and see traditional costumes, which so many children wore to school on the day.

A number of international parents were also able to support the event, sharing their own stories and information about their cultures with the children, providing samples of Italian pizza, Turkish tea and an array of home-cooked foods from Bangladesh, China, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The children performed a Greek dance on the playground to the parents, who clapped along enthusiastically.

Stephanie Praetig, Headteacher, said:

“It was a super day celebrating the diversity of our school which has over 25% of children from other countries all over the world”.

It’s International Day… thankfully the world does not solely consist of (racist) English!

Kenya? South Africa? There are often white faces in those parliaments. Google Philip Leakey.

I bet D Day wasn’t mentioned. Or any of our great history.

Our great colonial history do you mean? An empire based on slavery and genocide do you mean? Hang your head in shame.

Pupils celebrate Remembrance day, they wear poppies and learn about what the soldiers did. Non-Christian kids also join Christmas and Easter celebrations. You lost the bet.

From my personal experience (two children in primary school) all cultures are rightly celebrated and taught in school.

No zippy – a small selection of cultures are droned on about in UK schools – there are so many different cultures on this planet, that they cannot celebrate all – conveniently the lefty socialists in the schools always choose cultures that are anti english to drone on about

“English” with a capital ‘E’ my dear boy.

I bet these kids have a better grasp of syntax and grammar that you do!
