Rugby kids go around the world in seven days

Rugby Editorial 9th Jul, 2015 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016

MULTICULTURALISM was on the menu at Knightlow School when pupils spent the week travelling around the world – from behind their own desks.

The school hosted an Around the World Week to help the children learn about different places, people and cultures.

They welcomed visitors from different countries to try out some foreign languages, Bangra dancing and African drumming – and the school kitchen even laid on some internationally-themed menus.

The school already has established links with Malaysia, Norway, Poland, Spain, Chile, Mexico, India and Malawi thanks to their work in earning an International School Award from the British School Council earlier this year.

The week ended in the the whole school wearing traditional dress from around the world and an international themed Fete at the weekend.

Year five and reception classes also created collaborative stories with a school in Malawi and made books together as part of the stories4change project.

Across the globe, children from Malawi received the books sent from Knightlow School.

Copies of the books are available from the school. Email or call 02476 543751 for more information.
