International Evening - 23 March 2022

Posted on: 16/03/2022

On Wednesday 23rd March, 200 students and family members came to Copthall in the evening to celebrate our 2nd International Evening. On show were the K-Pop and Afrobeats dance groups, two wonderful Filipina singers in the sixth form, and the showpiece was a fashion show of 50 students from 17 different countries such as Zambia, Sri Lanka, Romania and Somalia, who showcased their cultural dress to the school community. This was followed by an international food hall, where performers and guests shared homemade food and encouraged their friends to try the wonderfully tasty dishes they had brought. Dishes included “puff puff” from West Africa, “gosh feel” from Afghanistan, “pancit” from the Philippines, and much more.

The event generated so much enthusiasm and excitement among the students, and we will definitely explore the possibility of expanding the event to allow even more to take part and their families to attend, as I know that there were many who were disappointed to miss out this time around. It was wonderful to witness the full diversity of Copthall students and families and to have provided them a space to celebrate their differences. We look forward to welcoming you to this fantastic event again next year.
