Pupils at a Portishead school were treated to African music, which ‘delivered important messages’.
Trinity Church Primary School welcomed the Zakhele Choir from South Africa, which hoped to pass on lessons through song and dance.
The choir is funded by the Za Foundation, a Portishead-based Christian charity.
The organisation supports orphans in South Africa through after-school clubs which provide them with academic help, meals, guidance and a place to play.
A school spokesman said the visit had a positive impact on the students.
They said: “The inspiring Zakhele Choir delivered important messages about wellbeing, compassion and tolerance through singing, dancing and storytelling.
“The children enthusiastically joined in with all the activities especially the wellington boot dancing.”
