Fun at SPHS Cultural Day


The San Pedro High School (SPHS) once again brought to life the many cultures that exist in Belize at their annual cultural day. The event was held on Friday, November 20th, and the highly anticipated event offered a day of fun and education for families and friends. Taking into consideration the various cultures that call Belize home, students at the SPHS were challenged to transform their classrooms into booths adorned with cultural attire, information, food and either a presentation of singing or dancing
