Students from Lynn’s College of West Anglia campus have been exploring cultural traditions in a day of hands-on workshops, designed to expand their knowledge of equality and diversity. Health and social care and childhood study pupils were treated to a range of experiences to highlight the diversity of society and how it affects job roles in career sectors.

Workshops included cooking staple dishes, attending a range of culture-specific birthday parties, Chinese dragon making sessions and a cultural dancing lesson.
