Celebrating world culture
Around 250 children from Crosby schools teamed up for a sellout concert to celebrate world culture, peace and equality.
The ‘Diversity 2014’ song, dance and music show, held this year at The Atkinson in Southport, featured ten schools from Crosby – seven primary schools and three secondary schools.
Show organiser Becky Woods, headteacher of St Nicholas CE Primary School, Blundellsands, said: “The concert was a colourful showcase that celebrated cultures from across the world through the amazing talents of local dancers, musicians and singers.
“The youngsters, who all worked so hard including during rehearsals, got a real buzz from their performances. Hopefully the experience will live with them for many years.”
The show was supported by Sefton Council and compered by journalist and media consultant Peter Harvey.
Diversity 2014 was organised by Crosby Area Partnership in Teaching and Learning (CAPITAL), a collaboration of schools working in partnership to stage events and share resources, expertise and skills.
