As part of the rich heritage of the Cornelian Philosophy of education and our passion for holistic education, the Holy Child Model Nursery and Primary School in Otukpo, Benue State, Nigeria had a week-long Intercultural/Sports Festival in May to show-case some cultures in Nigeria like Igede, Idoma, Igbo, Edo, Hausa, Tiv, Delta, Yoruba and Fulani. The students also displayed different talents in sports like football matche, egg race, filling the bottle, relay, and skipping by house competition between Cornelia Connelly, Bishop, Ellen MacCann and Cecilia.
Children, teachers and sisters participated actively. All were dressed gorgeously and danced to the traditional dances of the respective cultures.
