Nigeria Independence Day

We take great pride in celebrating our host country despite the diversity of the school and insist that all ages learn the words of the Nigerian National Anthem and come dressed to school for our celebratory day in Nigerian national attire. The day usually comprises of storytelling of traditional folktales such as Ajakpa and some form of cultural dance lessons or drumming workshops. The children enjoy arts and crafts activities with beads and play games such as basket carrying and “okada racing”. It has become a tradition to end the day with a class-by-class fashion parade and a buffet-style Nigerian lunch.
