Hundreds of students have decked out in colourful costumes to celebrate St Jude’s Day recently, showing their appreciation for the free, high-quality education they receive at the school.
Primary and secondary students did traditional African dances, including Maasai and other performances, which expressed their happiness at being able to study at St Jude’s and their dedication to their studies.
Awards were given out to the best group performances on the day. It is the third year that the event has been running and each year staff and students join together and dress up to demonstrate their sense of pride for their school.
During the event’s mass, students carried baskets of goods onto the stage, which they will then distribute to needy people throughout the Arusha region.
