Eighth-grade students learned a lot while preparing for the annual International Day celebration recently at St. James School in Manchester. Nicco Carilli learned that the literacy rate in Norway is 100 percent for the population age 15 or older, something he thinks the United States should try to achieve. He and group members, Jackie Andreo and Ryan Corl worked for six weeks to prepared their display about Norway. The International Day projects are a culmination of geography and English studies and require students to research, write reports, draw maps and develop a display to showcase the country they studied. In addition, students learn to work together in groups assigned by their geography and English teachers, Laurie Plourd and Joan Gordon, respectively. (Photos by Lenora Sumsky)
