Celebrating International Day 2019

Elmhurst's International Day celebrated the diversity of our school in real style this year. We enjoyed a wonderful array of activities from around the world run by staff and parents, including:

  • England - London Art, Maypole Dancing, celebrations and bunting
  • India - Mendhi patterns, Rangoli patterns, Warli art and Bollywood Dancing
  • Uganda - Dancing and stories
  • Malawi - Cooking
  • Japan - Origami, Cherry Blossom Cards and Haiku
  • Carribean - Mocktails
  • Sri-Lanka - Writing
  • France - Boules
  • Guatemala - Worry Dolls
  • Native America - Dream Catchers
  • Italy - Bruno Manari’s Alphabet Book 
  • Brazil - Carnival masks, music and dancing 
  • Africa - Sunset collages 
  • International - World Cup penalty goal scoring and Cricket

Every boy participated in five activities from five different countries. We then came together and celebrated all the things we had done in our 'Show and Tell' Assembly.

There were so many highlights, including the parents, boys and staff Bollywood Dancing led by Mrs. Vithlani (Aaran C's Mum) up on stage.

Thank you to all the parents who volunteered their time and creative ideas to a wonderful day and, of course, the legendary 'Food Fiesta' which always attracts a huge number of families. Elmhurst loves sharing food and celebrating diversity.
