Primary Pupils widen horizons at DGS International DayPosted on: 10/03/2022
Didcot Girls’ School was once again delighted to welcome over 160 primary school children from Didcot and surrounding areas to International Day, its long-standing celebration of languages and cultures from around the world.
Children travelled from Japan to Denmark, and from China to Spain in just a few steps, collecting stamps in their passports for each of the country-themed stands they visited.
Our young guests were guided round by over 30 Year 8 DGS students, who did an outstanding job in supporting them and representing the school. Many of our students were able to use this experience to count towards their ‘Gold’ badge on the DGS leadership ladder, having acted as role models for the younger children.
Didcot Mayor Cllr Mocky Khan and Mayoress Lisa Khan paid a visit and joined the young travellers on their trip to Japan, where they learned all about Japanese dress and the USA, where they created an amazing flag-inspired game.
Everyone went home with a treasure trove of memories and a bag full of arts and crafts they created inspired by the countries they ‘visited’.
We very much look forward to welcoming another cohort of young globetrotters next year, as we continue this long-standing successful event at DGS.
