Heritage Day

Heritage Day at Shirley School

We are very proud that we have a diverse school community and that at any time within the school year you will find more than twenty different languages in our school and children who have heritages from all around the world.

Embracing an idea from our parents at the school ESOL cafe this year we planned Shirley School Heritage Day to give our children the opportunity to share and celebrate their heritages.
 
 
We decided to raise funds for other children around the world by supporting UNICEF with a non uniform day. The theme of the day was to dress to reflect your heritage in your traditional clothes or in the colours of your national flag. 

Each class took time during the day to share with one another the things they value about their heritage. Take a look below at some of the photos from this special celebratory day.
