A day of learning about world cultures and the heritage of fellow pupils was enjoyed at Burchetts Green Infant School on Tuesday.

Pupils and teachers all dressed up as different nationalities from across the world for the school’s annual International Day.

Headteacher of the school in Burchetts Green Road, Delia Sheppard, said: “It’s important to have this day as lots of the children are from different cultures and backgrounds and we wanted to celebrate together as a school and learn about everyone’s heritage.

“We tasted different foods and did various crafts representing countries all over the world.

“The children also did a research homework over half term about any country of their choosing and have to learn all about life there.

“We had a lovely day.”

The staff also dressed up in national dress of their country of heritage or a country of their choosing.
