Event - Unicef World Carnival

23 March 2012

On Friday 23rd March we held a Unicef World Carnival in school to celebrate the different world faiths.

All the children in school had spent the week leading up to the festival learning about different world faiths including: Sikhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and Christianity in other parts of the world.

The carnival was a huge success; all of the children performed a prayer, dance or song for their parents and families from the faith which they had been learning about.

Following the carnival we held our Lenten fund raising event, where there was an Easter egg, bottle and teddy tombola along with a tea coffee and cake being served.

All of the parents, families and children had a very enjoyable afternoon along with raising £400 for our Lenten charities.
