The school’s courtyard was dressed in Harmony Day orange, while students and staff displayed an array of national costumes.
They enjoyed a banquet of Halal chicken-and-rice tahchin, lamb-and-rice ghormeh sabzi, chicken biryani, beef korma, pulav rice, pasta, dumplings, curries, chicken nuggets, haloumi cheese, zaatar pizza, calamari rings and spring rolls.
Not to mention the ever-popular cupcakes and donuts.
