Curwen Primary School held a citizenship assembly, cooking competition, fashion show, cranival and other activities for the annual international week.

The school's executive head teacher Paul Harris, who is also CEO of The Tapscott Learning Trust, said, "This is one of our best moments in the school calendar.

"This is what makes Curwen so special."

International week began with a whole school assembly, with each year group nominating a 'compassion champion' who received a badge in recognition.
