Cultural Day

Cultural day at school was a time set for us students to share our countries’ cultures and traditions. Given that MSJ is highly multi-cultural, it is no surprise that this was an extremely colourful and lively event. I felt privileged to be given the opportunity to experience bits of various countries’ cultures (especially the food), particularly places I have yet to visit. In this post, I will be focusing on the clothes worn by just a few of those countries.

All photos were taken and edited by me.

NIGERIA


In our school, we are quite lucky to have a wide mix of Nigerians, with differing personalities and from a range of states and tribes (including Hausa-Fulani, Yoruba, Igbo & Edo). This was reflected in our outfits, which ranged from traditional attires to more modern looks.
