The 6th King's Hospital Multicultural Week 2018 ran from Tuesday 8th May to Friday 11th May. As has become tradition, we started each morning with a performance in Chapel and the Lord's Prayer read by a student in a language other than English. For the first time, we opened the week with a parade of flags in Chapel where two students from each nationality represented in the school carried their country's flag. Events were held throughout the week with a themed lunch every day and the highlight being the International Market held on Thursday. We had the greatest number of countries to date - 21 - represented at the market. Both students and parents supported this event so generously with delicious food on offer from each country. The week finished with language taster classes for Form 1 in Arabic, Finnish, Russian, Hungarian and Yoruba - all taught by native speakers within the school.
