Pupils learn a bit of African culture from Adele
PUPILS at Winscombe Primary School were taught traditional African dances and some Afrikaans phrases by a Winscombe woman who recently returned from a youth mission to the continent.
Adele Sutton, the daughter of teacher Deb Cook, spent the last year in South Africa, Mozambique and Swaziland working with children, and the pupils had helped raise money for her trip by holding a cake sale last year, while she also kept in contact by letter throughout the year.
Adele took a special full school assembly to tell pupils of her trip, before showing pupils dances, teaching them Afrikaans – the language of South Africa - and showing them different aspects of African culture.
Mrs Cook said: “The children absolutely loved it, they really enjoyed learning the dance moves and phrases and they’ve asked her to go back again.”
