Children and staff from Tiverton Primary School came together last week to hold their annual International evening.
Gospel singing, African dance and salsa were just a few of the performances at the event in Putford Road, held to celebrate the diverse range of 35 nationalities that make up the school community.
“We strongly believe in community cohesion,” headteacher Resham Mirza told the Gazette.
“We hold the event to celebrate the fact that, while we’re all Londoners, we all have different backgrounds and we should embrace that.
“It’s all about being open minded about other cultures, and that’s important from a young age.”
