WOW! From start to finish, DESS has been filled with a buzz from beating drums, cultural music and delicious smells throughout the entire day…it must be our International Day!
Thank you so much to the huge number of parents who have collaborated in the true fashion of DESS to create some amazing learning opportunities and representing the natural diversity of such an outstanding school.
The stalls representing 25 nations this year were colourful, tasty, engaging and welcoming. Thank you to everyone who contributed in so many ways.
A wider range of cultural experiences for the children have included Bhangra, Scottish, Jazz, London Westend, Bollywood, Line and Belly dancing. In addition Karate, Creative Arabic, PE games and Languages from around the world all added to the fun.
The Global Picnic this year took on a slightly different twist, with the entire school coming together to enjoy the yummy food whilst watching performers from a mixture of professional, staff, child and parent acts… we were truly blessed to watch flamenco, ballet, Irish dancers and our very own flash mob, who have been practising during their lunchtimes especially for our picnic!
A special thank you to Gillian, Manasi, Shweta and Deepti for giving up their time to teach dance workshops for our students and to Paola for her wonderful flamenco performance.
