Amazing Africa day at Aire View Infant School, Silsden
8:00am Friday 1st March 2013 in News
Youngsters at a Silsden school enjoyed a variety of fun, creative activities to celebrate and learn about the culture of Africa.
The Amazing Africa day, at Aire View Infant School, also raised more than £140 for a scheme to build primary schools in Gambia.
The day included an assembly delivered by Linda Gunn, a grandparent of an Aire View pupil, who leads the Gambian Schools Project, mask making, silk and face painting and musical and drama sessions.
“I thought it was fantastic – beyond expectations,” said deputy headteacher Tim Whitehead.
