“I really enjoyed today. I’ve learnt so much information that I never knew before. I still can’t believe how many people don’t have clean water!
I also had fun in the afternoon seeing and learning more about my country and others.
Overall, the whole experience has been amazing! Seeing all the different costumes and watching an array of presentations made it a day I will never forget!”
