Celebrating Multicultural Day

Our student leadership assembly organised another successful Multicultural day celebrating the diversity of culture that makes up our community in either curriculum or student background. It was a fantastic day run by our SLA, Ms Hines as the coordinator and many teachers leading workshops and supervising activities. Our year 7 and 8 students had each participated in a range of workshops and the activities of the day drew in the participation of all students.

This is the second year in a row we have run this day and this year’s was even bigger and better than last. It was a wonderful way of promoting and appreciating the cultural diversity of our school community and learning about different cultures.

As part of our celebrations students and staff were invited to come to school dressed in traditional colours of different countries and enjoy a number of multicultural stalls and activities that were run by students and teachers. Activities included:

  • Chinese stall where students learned about writing Chinese characters, playing Majong and the art to making perfect dumplings which they got to taste.
  • Scottish stall where students learned about parts of Scottish culture such as clans, tartan, kilts, music etc.
  • Greek stall with Greek doughnuts and savoury breads on offer.
  • Greek dancing.
  • Bollywood dancing at lunchtime.
  • French stall where delicious crepes were on offer.
  • Indigenous display which included Aboriginal art and other important cultural items.
  • Drama activities that saw studnets use their creativity to form new cultures.
  • Masterchef multicultural challenge where student teams marketed their food which could be purchased and voted on to decide on our Masterchef champions. We had four teams, Team Mexico, Team France, Team USA and Team Australia. All teams worked very hard  and with enthusiasm. Congratulations to our winners, Team France and their crepes.
