Video: Prospect Primary International Night

March 4, 2013

Prospect Primary School held its tenth annual International Night recently. Students from P1 through to P6 studied different countries and then created displays and put on a demonstration that represented something from that country’s culture.

Each year, the students select a country from one of the six continents, but always, one class does their International study on Bermuda.

This year, P1 students did Egypt on the African continent; P2 did Trinidad & Tobago from the Caribbean; P3 did Canada from North America; P5 did Spain, Europe; P6 did Thailand, Asia; and P4 studied Bermuda.

Students researched the geography, history, and aspects of the country’s culture concentrating on dances, song, and poetry. Students then roped in their parents to cook food that used recipes and ingredients commonly used in the country studied. On the night, parents provided ‘international food’ that was there to be tasted and sampled.

Passports were issued and parents, friends, and students needed a passport that had to be produced in order to get a taste of the available food.

Over a hundred adults and scores of happy students crowded into the school’s assembly hall for the tasting and show.

One special show featured Bermuda culture and saw Ms Carol-Ann Daniels, a retired limbo dancer entertainer, don her old working costume and put on a short but fun entertainment that saw the students lining up and taking part in a limbo dance.

This year’s International Night was put on by the teachers, students, and parents. Chairperson for the event was Ms Tamberle Bean assisted by Mrs Denise Gardiner and Mr Cecil O’Connor.
