On the 19th of July, Eastwood pupils took part in a cultural day. They chose Africa to represent this special day on. They had a lot of different lessons all related to Africa. In art, they created huts, in geography they played a water game and in dance they learned a traditional African dance. The Lucky pupil experienced their first culture day.
In the English lesson, the academy pupils looked at a certain topic to do with a country in Africa. The choices were HIV, famine, African civil war, mountain gorillas and malaria. They had to make a charity and tell the class what the charity does to help. They also had a budget to spend on materials. They also had to have money spare to give to their charity and whoever had the most won.
