A vibrant school seemed more like a meeting of the United Nations as pupils enjoyed a week of learning about different cultures.
That’s because Northbury Primary School in Barking held its International Week celebration for the whole community to enjoy. Each class was given a country to learn about on Monday last week before going on a tour of the Northbury Close school on Friday to spread their knowledge.
“One morning I walked into the hall and a class was having a dance lesson to reggae from their country Jamaica,” assistant headteacher Kulvinder Johal said.
“Another class were eating their pasta, whic had just been cooked, whilst they sang along to Volare.”
Kulvinder added the “magical time” filled the corridors with “excitement, fun, so much colour and energy and lots of fantastic sounds and smells”.
Other countries focused on included Japan and Bangladesh.
