Brazil Day – A Carnival in Byker

The school held a wonderful Brazil Day, complete with carnival, to celebrate the upcoming Rio Olympics. The children all wore bright colours and took part in a variety of workshops, including instrument making, handball, jewellery making, samba dancing and a talk with a Brazilian student.

The day was run in conjunction with sports charity Hat-Trick and included Latin American dance teacher Coco.

The children had a wonderful time and really enjoyed parading in their masks, complete with their own musical instruments, for all their families.

They helped raise money for charities that support Brazilian families living in Rio slums, by each donating £1.
