Youngsters learned more about South African traditions through storytelling, singing and dancing.
The Za Foundation held workshops at Worlebury Primary School, in Woodspring Avenue, on March 25.
Youth group Zakhele visited the school and used music and drama to deliver important educational information relating to HIV and other social issues.
The Za Foundation is based in the Nkomazi region of South Africa and works to relieve poverty, improve education and address healthcare needs.
Its UK base is in Portishead and dance troops tour North Somerset every two years to promote a greater understanding of the dangers of HIV.
