Merton International School marked “Ghana day” on the 8th of November, 2019 with a colourful display of costumes, dance, skits and poetry. Working in six groups, pupils and students focused on tourist attractions, history, culture, myths and legends.
Some parents joined in the fun by dressing up in costumes from their home Regions and taking a few steps on the dance floor.
In her closing remarks, the C.E.O, Mrs. Elizabeth Baitie underscored the need for the children to connect with culture and show respect and understanding for people of other cultures. An exhibition of Ghanaian foods and fruits were also on display.
