Food, art and history on cultural day for students
8:00am Friday 20th December 2013 in News
Youngsters at the Craven Pupil Referral Service enjoyed a cultural day where they had the opportunity to take part in different experiences.
They tucked into Indian food cooked by a local Asian woman Yesmien Bagh Ali, who runs Skipton-based Amaali promoting Kashmiri food and culture, and visited Buddha Land in Keighley where they met Dra-ma, a Buddhist, who talked about Buddhism and led a short meditation session.
The students also took part in a Diwali art project and made small candles which formed a display.
Craven’s own cultural heritage was not forgotten with a visit to Skipton’s Holy Trinity Parish Church.
“It was a really successful day and pupils got a lot out of it,” said head Dale Hannah.
She added: “It raised lots of interesting questions and pupils were very engaged throughout the day.”
