Zulu dancing, African art and Bollywood moves were on the timetable as a lower school celebrated its 11th multicultural week.

Pupils at Goldington Green Academy were treated to a performance by the Mighty Zulu Nations dancers before having a go at singing and dancing.

The week’s events were organised by Tracy Wilson, who co-ordinates the lower school’s English as an Additional Language, Equality and Diversity unit.

She said: “The children had a ball. It was a spectacular sight. They are still chanting and clapping in the corridors.”

The Zulu dancers visited the school on Monday, February 10, when the school focussed on African culture. Pupils were also given art workshops and were able to make a djembe drum.

The rest of the week looked at other traditions with visits from Bollywood dancers, Flamenco dancers and reggae musicians.
