PUPILS from Greneway School in Royston have been experiencing something a little more exotic than usual in lessons.

The pupils then showed their new skills in front of the whole school in an assembly.

Terry Graves, assistant head teacher and leader of PE, said: "The day was part of our multi-cultural education programme.
