Pretoria - With the rich diverse cultures South Africa has, Lycée Jules Verne French International welcomed even more nationalities to celebrate heritage day on Monday in Arcadia.
The school which hosts nationalities such as Togo, Nigeria, Egypt, Tunisia, Russia and many more caters for students from the nursery year through to Grade 5.
School Principal Ban Gratien said he thought it was important for the children to know where their classmates are from and for them to embrace their roots no matter where they are.
“It is special to the parents because they get to dress in their traditional clothes ass well and come inside the school and share with other parents about their cultures.”
“It helps the children as well when they explain where they are from and share, they get to understand each other better,” he said.
