Multicultural Day

Multicultural Day

Last Wednesday, 21 March, 2018 the whole school celebrated ‘Harmony week’ with our annual ‘Multicultural day’. The day started with a parade, students came in wonderful costumes representative of their cultures. It was evident that a lot of thought and effort went into the costumes which was fantastic to see.

The parade was followed by a learning rotation. The kids participated in activities such as origami making, learning how to play the European sport; ‘fist ball’, making Chinese dragon masks, learning how to play French boules referred to as ‘Petanque’ and making pasta necklaces (just to name a few).

After recess the junior school had the pleasure of watching ‘Around the World and Back again’ by Two Friends Productions whilst the middle and senior school engaged in a second learning rotation. After the first show, the middle and senior school students then watched the show whilst the junior school engaged in a second learning rotation. The presentation was an engaging and fun filled story about a Captain and his sailor assistant who travel the world making amazing discoveries. The story explored various continents, countries and their cultures. The incursion was fantastic, it provided lots of learning and laughs and was thoroughly enjoyed by students and staff!

The students then had a special pizza lunch that was organised with the help of our wonderful PFA that consisted of authentic Italian pizzas from ‘Via Condotti’. This was followed by gelato from the ‘Something Sweet’ gelato cart. Students enjoyed either vaniglia (vanilla) or fragola (strawberry). Both the pizza and gelato were delicious! After lunch, students discussed and reflected on the day’s events as well as developed their understanding of the significance of Harmony week.

Multicultural day 2018 was a fantastic success. It demonstrated the wonderfully diverse yet collaborative community we have at Belle Vue Primary School. As a community we were able to lead by example what it means to live in harmoniously in a multicultural community. Students, staff and parents should be proud of the successful day it was. Thank you to everyone for their contributions, Multicultural day 2018 is certainly one we will not forget!
