Children showed their knowledge of Irish dancing and African percussion as they welcomed teachers from across Europe to their school.

Over the past two years St Vincent's Catholic Primary School in The Ridgeway, Mill Hill, has taken part in the British Council funded Comenius project - Once Upon a Technology.

The project has aimed to improve pupils' understanding of European cultures and languages using computers

Staff travelled overseas to find out about the differences and similarities in traditions, cultures and customs, before returning to use their experiences to organise fun and educational activities.

The project culminated with St Vincent's hosting staff from Ireland, Belgium, Germany and Sweden.

Children put on a special performance showcasing everthing they had learnt throughout the project including Irish dancing and how to play the African drums. 

The MP for Hendon, Matthew Offord, also attended the event, as well as parents.
