Tortillas, salsa and songs were all the rage on Tuesday Night (29th November) during the Red Bay Primary School’s Primary Years Programme (PYP) Cultural Night.  The event highlighted the culture, foods, dress and dance of 18 Latin countries, from Cuba to Argentina, as well as Spain.

Performances to a standing-room only crowd of hundreds of children, relatives and friends blended with many displays and food samplings of the various Spanish speaking countries.

In the weeks leading up to this event, the students embarked on an educational journey in which they were immersed in the culture of the country their class chose to study.  Many classroom lessons were spent learning songs, national facts, and phrases in the national languages, in addition to the individual projects that were completed by the students.

All of these items were displayed for parents, family and friends who attended the event.

Thanking all involved, school officials noted that the success of this cultural exposure was due to the combined efforts of students, teachers and parents.

The cultural extravaganza was also a precursor to this weekend’s Family Fun Day, which takes place at the grounds of Red Bay Primary School this Saturday, 3rd December, from 12 noon to 6:00p.m.
