DAME Bradbury's School explored the smells and sounds of Ghana during a special multi-cultural day.
The event was arranged to coincide with a visit to the school by Joseph Donkor, Head of Future Academy School in Ghana, which is a 'link school' with Dame Bradbury's.
Children at both of the schools have been exchanging letters, photographs and DVDs, to gain a better understanding of each others' lives.
Highlights of the day included dance and drumming workshops with African cultural arts ensemble, Nzinga Dance, sessions about the African country's culture, history and food with Ghanaian Tanya Bunney, and cooking black eyed bean curry and deep-fried spicy plantain with staff and parents.
