All Saints’ go Nigeria ‘visiting’
The students of All Saints’ Primary School visited Nigeria yesterday.
Not leaving the walls of the St Peter institution, the students, who were decked in African attire, took a look at aspects of the Nigerian culture, including the landscape, religion, family, food, games, government, Independence, music, dance and dress.
The classes put together visual and tangible displays, and some even sang or danced about what they know of the African continent as they celebrated African Awareness Day.
Teacher Cindy Edwards, one of the organizers of the day’s celebration titled Welcome To Nigeria, that included a concert and hairstyle competition, said the students were ready and willing to learn about Nigeria.
“After today we are going to leave up the displays for a little while, so that the students can have more time to learn from them. The students did learn a lot and were anxious to present what they have gathered today,” she said.
Edwards noted that parents were also very much involved in the process as a majority of students were dressed in their African wear, and a favourable number had entered the hairstyle competition with creative designs.
