Huge congratulations to all of the children, parents and staff who contributed to Cathedral Primary School’s International Evening on Thursday 21st May. This sell-out evening was an opportunity to celebrate our wonderfully diverse school community through song, drama, dance, music and spoken word. The performances were extremely accomplished and included African drumming, Scottish dancing, a lesson in Tamil, a French song, a recital of an ancient Egyptian text as will as Azonto dancing, some instrumental performances and a performance from the Cathedral School Choir.
Mr Scott compered the show and the Cathedral School Staff Choir started the evening off with their rendition of The Little Birds from Jamaica while one of the Year 3 children performed a Nigerian song with her mum. We were also treated to some impromptu Azonto dancing from some very talented mums!
International Evening is also an opportunity to get together as a school community and taste a variety of foods from around the world, many thanks to all of the parents and staff who provided the food for the interval.
All the staff at Cathedral are incredibly proud of the children and believe that International Evening is an important way to showcase the quality of our arts provision. It is also a chance to demonstrate our commitment to developing International links and celebrate our own diverse community.
Finally we would once again like to thank all the performers, parents and staff who contributed to a superb evening.
Photos will be available soon.
