Recently I went along to the Sutton Tamil School’s 9th Annual Cultural Program at Wallington High School for Girls.

I was treated to some incredible performances by children who attended the school. They played traditional instruments, sang, and others delivered some very remarkable speeches.

I also made a speech, in which I spoke about the positive contribution that the Tamil community are making in Sutton, and the rest of the UK, both culturally and economically. In addition, I spoke about how the next generation are performing particularly well academically and will become leaders of their communities in the future. I wrapped up my visit by handing out awards to some of the children who I met that afternoon.

I want to thank the Sutton Tamil School for inviting me along to this event and I look forward to seeing more of the Tamil community in the future.
