Learning Understanding and Tolerance

On Friday 15th September, around 200 students from Congleton High School Partner Primary Schools again took up the opportunity to take part in a whole day of fun and unusual activities designed to introduce them to different cultures and how others live their lives around the world.

During this, the fifth annual Cultural Diversity Day, the students shared in a carousel of unique activities including wheelchair basketball, Bollywood dancing, African beading and a drum workshop bringing multinational themes together. The workshops not only encouraged the students to work together in groups in a confident and cooperative manner but also required them to consider a range of moral, ethical and cultural issues in a fun and interactive way. 

For many students, it allowed them the opportunity to learn about cultural and lifestyle differences and obstacles through the arts and sports and, at times, challenge some of their own thoughts and opinions. Response to the activities was overwhelmingly positive and everyone involved agreed that aims of the day had been achieved. The event also enabled the Congleton High students of the future to begin to build relationships at an early stage, making their move up from primary to secondary school a little less daunting.
