The photograph below shows the head of St Marie’s School, John Fernandes, receiving the £100 first prize and certificate for the school’s outstanding performance at the One Sheffield Many Cultures Festival held in June in Barkers Pool Sheffield.

  The presentation was made by the chair of One Sheffield Many Cultures, Abdool Gooljar, the President of Sheffield’s Islamic Society of Britain.  It took place on 11 July, the day of the World Cup semi-final, hence the footballing theme of the face painted pupils and the sports attire of the headteacher!

  Runners-up were the Romano Jilo Dance Group and the Arabic Language Community School.

  Congratulations to all schools who participated with performances to celebrate diversity in Sheffield, including All Saints, Notre Dame, and Sacred Heart, Hillsborough.
