Didcot Girls School celebrates cultures at International Day

By March 13, 2024No Comments

Didcot Girls School hosted 200 primary school children for a celebration of languages and cultures.

The school welcomed the pupils for its International Day, with activities highlighting languages and cultures from across the world.

Children learnt about places including Poland, Chile, Austria, and China, collecting stamps in their passport at each stand representing a country.

More than 30 Didcot Girls School year 8 students guided the ‘travellers’ throughout their journey, which earned them brownie points towards their gold badge on the Didcot Girls School leadership ladder.

The event saw the attendees return home with a bag of arts and crafts, with inspiration coming from places like France and Brazil.

The event was attended by members of Didcot Town Council, including the deputy mayor.

The school said: “We very much look forward to welcoming another cohort of young globetrotters next year, as we continue this successful and long-standing event at Didcot Girls School.”

Didcot Girls School is the only all girls comprehensive school in Oxfordshire.

It said it is “proud of the superb opportunities we offer to all of our girls to develop in an environment which fosters resilience, leadership skills and a commitment to the highest educational standards”.
