This paper explores the concepts of identity and belonging in a culturally diverse Greek Cypriot primary school. By employing narrative inquiry methods it examines the way the cultural diversity of the student population is affecting their identity. The findings indicate that students are being classified into groups according to their place of birth, their parents’ background and the time they have spent in Cyprus. The study also reveals incidents of racism, which are overcome through the increased contact between Cypriot and non-Cypriot students.
