UWC Atlantic College students ‘Celebrate with Action’
20th September 2012
On 20 September UWC Atlantic College students gathered in the Arts Centre to present ‘Around the World in 80 minutes’ to children from six local schools.
Students wore their national dress and welcomed the children, showing them traditional dance, language and performances. The children spend a total of 80 minutes with all of the different nationalities from around the world.
John Walmsley, Principal of the college, invited the children to ask questions about the students’ nationalities and learn about their different cultures.
A colourful Chinese dragon led the children across the top lawn to a picnic lunch. The children participated in a New Zealand Haka War dance and also sang with the college choir and learnt a variety of songs.
Also as part of the ‘Celebrate with Action,’ staff and students of 'The Everest Challenge' continued to climb through Wednesday evening and completed the challenge in record time with over £1,750.00 raised.
