UPTON High School has been busy organising a cultural diversity day in order to raise awareness of the difficulties different cultures face in today’s society.
The event saw pupils from the high school and local primary schools gather in order to be educated about a variety of cultures other than their own.
Co-ordinator Roz Thomson said: “It was a wonderful day. The aim was to raise the cultural awareness of pupils in Chester to the multi-culturalism that is seen in all parts of Britain.”
The high school welcomed guest-speaker Rooph Singah who shared his stories about growing up as a Sikh in Britain highlighting the issues and challenges he faced. Invited guest Kajal Sharma taught Bollywood dance workshops in order to introduce the children to the celebrations of Indian culture.
Teachers and pupils alike enjoyed the day, highlighting the differences in cultures in communities and expressing the need to educate children about these differences.
