DGS International Day sees primary pupils travel the world in a few steps

Didcot Girls’ School was once again delighted to welcome some 200 primary school children from Didcot and surrounding areas to International Day, its long-standing celebration of languages and cultures from around the world.

On a sunny March Day in Didcot, children travelled from Poland to Chile and from Austria to China in just a few steps, collecting stamps in their passports for each of the country stands they visited. They made pan flutes, competed in a chop stick race, and even built Viking fortresses whilst visiting Denmark.

Our young guests were guided round by over 30 DGS year 8 students, who did an outstanding job in supporting them and representing DGS. Many of the DGS girls 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.

Everyone went home with a treasure trove of memories and a bag full of arts and crafts they had created inspired by countries as far away as the France and Brazil.

We were delighted to welcome members of Didcot Town Council include Councillor Andrew Jones, Deputy Mayor of Didcot. 

We very much look forward to welcoming another cohort of young globetrotters next year, as we continue this successful and long-standing event at DGS.
