Belize is proud of its rich cultures and therefore it is very much part of the school curriculum!! So here on the island The Caye Caulker Roman Catholic School held its Cultural Day.

The cultures were broken down into Garifuna, Creole, Mestizo, Maya and the Chinese and divided amongst the classes. Stands were set up in the playground, to represent each group and the children dressed up similarly to put on a colorful show for all who looked upon. Each stand told the history of it’s culture, identified and sold food that were indicative of their ethnicity and many prepared it right there in school.

Towards lunchtime, as many were indulging in their favorite food, each group took to the floor to give us a wonderful display of their dancing skills whilst dressed in their costumes. Fun and festivities were in the air in an excellent way for children to learn to identify how this very unique country is put together!
