Global diversity celebrated at The Bawburgh School with Jaya dancing and Capoiera workshops
Pupils at The Bawburgh School have been celebrating global cultural diversity.
The primary school has been working with global education charity Norfolk Education and Action for Development, culminating in the week of celebrations.
Headteacher Jan Staff explained: 'The children have been working off timetable and welcoming visitors from India, Nepal, Brazil and Zimbabwe. They have worked on a range of cross curricular activities and workshops, such as dance, music and craft.
'The aim of the project has been to further explore cultural diversity, to help broaden the children's understanding of different cultures as well as challenge misconceptions and prejudices.
'It was important for children to think about the wider world and how local and global communities are so interconnected.'
