A school has made it their mission to not just limit their pupils’ education to Maths and English, as they held a night to celebrate cultures from around the world.
ChristChurch Primary School, in Wellesley Road, Ilford, held a multicultural evening for its pupils and their parents, to help widen their knowledge of the world around them.
Head teacher Kirsty Steedman, said: “The multi-cultural evening was a great success and was a wonderful way to celebrate our schools community.”
The evening gave the school community a chance to try food from different cultures, an enjoyable story telling session by the Wizard drama group, as well as some very active Zumba workshops and salsa dancing.
A West End performer made a visit to the school and enlightened pupils with a Chinese dance workshop, teaching them a traditional style of moves from the East.

The school also held a talent show where children could show off their hidden talents from their own cultures, including, dancing, karate routines, and even a drumming routine, which their head teacher believed they did with “great enthusiasm”.
But to the parents’ surprise, during the interval two professional river dancers popped up on stage and performed a very special river dance performance for them all to enjoy while they were waiting for the next act to begin.
