Pupils celebrate the cultural diversity of our school at the end a busy school year.
To mark the end of the school year, Bishop’s hosted a Summer celebration which explored the beauty of the different cultures represented in our school. Pupils came in wearing the colours of their flag or in clothing showing their cultural heritage. In the afternoon, everyone took part in traditional games and activities designed and hosted by each Form and even by some of the staff for other students; for example, sweet pong, guess the card, glitter tattoos, face painting, a Broom Game and much more !!! Overall, it was a fun and unique experience which we really enjoyed as an end of term activity and would like to see repeated!
We also had live music being performed in the dining room. Two lively sets were played by our African Drumming Troupe, who performed original compositions they had been working on during their weekly lunchtime rehearsals. We were also treated to energetic performances from some of our Year 9 classes who shared some Samba music which they have been studying in their latest unit within their music lessons. Well done to all performers, you really embraced our school ethos of responsible risk taking and added to the atmosphere of the event. Some of your audience even commented that it felt as though they were “at a carnival”!
