Valleys' school hosts celebration of cultural diversity.

Pupils have been commended for their work in understanding cultural differences by the education minister. Cwmlai Primary School in Tonyrefail has played a key role in the One World, Our World scheme which aims to encourage youngsters to embrace diversity.

Education Minister Jane Davidson

said, 'Projects like the One World, Our World exhibition are very important. They bring communities closer together by creating a better understanding of the different cultures of which we in Wales are comprised. They are vital in helping to invest young people with a sense of the global citizenship that is fostering good relations worldwide.'

Work by Year 4 children is now on display at the school, including children's perspectives of Picasso's works, Italian theatre masks, Welsh love spoons, Chinese calligraphy, Egyptian mummies, and New York yellow cabs.
