Smestow Academy is hosting our first Culture Day today, with pupils in all year groups having been invited to participate in wearing traditional dress and taking part in cultural performances. Mrs Lampitt, our Chef has also created a special culture day menu in the cafe.
Culture Day was organised as a result of pupil voice, with our children wanting to celebrate how diverse we are as a school. Did you know that we have children from 33 different countries?!?!
Staff and pupils are demonstrating our mutual respect and tolerance of other faiths and beliefs, which is one of the fundamental British values, but our Smestow values also shine through with making a difference every day, equality and respect for all and providing a welcoming and caring environment.
Over 130 pupils have arrived to school today in cultural dress and performances will take place at lunchtime in the dining hall. Take a look at the photos to see what a great day we are having!
