Culture Day 2024

The Newbridge School was a vibrant hub of colour in June, as staff and students came together to mark their first-ever Culture Day.

The day saw members of the school community come together and participate in a variety of initiatives designed to acknowledge and celebrate the multitude of religions, nationalities and cultures in the school.

Before each lesson, students watched a presentation which focused on a specific teacher’s culture. Children learned more about Pakistani, French, Welsh, Punjabi and Mauritian customs and traditions.

Staff brought in food from different cultures – which they sampled during breaktime – whilst samosas and a Caribbean-themed lunch menu certainly went down a treat!

With it being summer, staff and students faced off in a traditional game of cricket to highlight the diversity of the sport around the world. After a competitive, no-holds-barred match, in front of a large, supportive crowd, it was the students who triumphed by a number of runs.

“The students really enjoyed learning about different cultures,” explained English Teacher Sahiba Giga, who helped organise the event.

“Students were full of questions for the staff involved.”

It was an illuminating and enriching day, one that opened students’ eyes to a wide variety of cultures.

We look forward to doing it all over again next year!
