Bagpipers, cloggers and morris dancers entertained students at Encinal Elementary School on Nov. 17 during the Atherton school's seventh annual Cultural Arts Day.
Students started the all-day program with a video focusing on the sports and music of the British Isles, followed by a history lesson. Entertainment was provided by the Stuart Highland Marching Band, Clogging Express and Mad Molly dancers. There was a maypole dancing demonstration and performances by resident artists from the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival.
Families contributed artifacts, games, flags and Scottish kilts to a British museum the children visited during the day. Teachers, staff and more than 100 volunteers were treated to a traditional English tea, which included coronation chicken and cucumbers sandwhiches.
Cultural Arts Day chairmen were Lynne Craig, Indu Sharma, Ami Bhow and Diane McGrath.
