Staff, pupils and friends of St Nicholas C of E Primary School and Nursery in Stevenage kicked off the school year with their second annual International Day last Saturday.

The school is proud of its diverse community and the day brought together all its families and friends for food tasting, dance and music.

The afternoon began with a performance by a steel band, then a group of junior children performed on the African drums led by Risenga from the Stevenage Music Service.

There were culinary treats from all corners of the world including goat curry, Irish stew, Indian delicacies, English cream scones and more.

People posted on the school’s Facebook page to say how much they enjoyed the event.

One said: “Excellent day! Great to see so many people there supporting the school”.

Another said: “Absolutely great day! It was nice to see everybody enjoying themselves and what a great community, like one big happy family”.
