Here at St Peter’s, our annual International Evening is an extremely popular and well attended event that showcases and celebrates the diverse ethnic culture within St Peter’s and the Greater Manchester community.
One of the goals of International Evening is to celebrate the diversity of the pupils at St Peter’s; our students speak over 60 different languages with 68 different nationalities.
The evening embraces a wealth of heritage in the form of brave and talented students and members of the community performing a wide range of acts.
Over 150 students and staff were involved in last year’s evening, which included:
- African drumming and dance
- Traditional English and Irish music and dance
- Ukrainian dance
- Comedy sketches
- Songs in Swahili and Polish
- A Chinese dragon dance
- And even a circus act.
International food and costume are also part of the night, which encompasses the spirit of St Peter’s High School.
