STUDENTS of the Rabaul Play School in East New Britain celebrated the Independence Day anniversary with a cultural show yesterday.
Headmistress Relly Manning said it was important that students promoted and appreciated the culture and tradition of their provinces.
They represented and were attired in their seven traditional groups: East New Britain, Manus, Momase, Autonomous Region of Bougainville, New Ireland, Central and Eastern Highlands.
Manning said the annual programme was to educate students to value their culture.
The students exchanged baskets with their selected partners followed by a march.
Teachers and staff had been hard at work for the past weeks with students rehearsing for the big day yesterday, watched by parents and relatives.
