Canarian Day is always greeted with the same energetic enthusiasm by both staff and pupils. Everyone really enjoys this very cultural and full-filled day. Weeks before the Canarian spirit grows as the dances and songs are allocated to each different year group and the pupils can be heard practising throughout the school.
On the actual day there is a buzz of excitement as the proud pupils arrive in their beautiful traditional costumes. They await a day full of Canarian traditional activities that this year not only included wrestling and boules but also the making of Canarian flags, “gofio” and jewellery to take home.
The older pupils presented their very own power points or poster on information they had researched on their chosen island and everyone acquired a deeper knowledge of their archipelagic islands where we live.
During the day the school was very busy receiving parents to watch various year groups perform their song or traditional Canarian dance.
