YOUNGSTERS in Scarborough had the chance to learn about different cultures as part of a Cultural Envoys project.

The event at Scalby School in Fieldstead Crescent also involved children from both Newby and Scalby and Northstead Primary Schools.

The younger pupils joined 100 Scalby students from Year 7, aged 11 to 12, to take part in the project.

The students enjoyed two hour-long sessions with guests from the Gvants Lakh Kushia Asian resource centre in Hull.

Mrs Kamlesh Singh led traditional Indian food tasting, dancing and Sikh dress experiences.

Teacher Emma Choat, who organised the event, said: “Encouraging cultural cohesion and understanding diversity within our own and other communities around the UK is the focus of the Cultural Envoys project, resulting in students become learning ‘envoys’ within their own schools.

“I am very grateful to our guests for coming over to Scarborough and giving us all such an enjoyable and interesting morning.”
