Monday the 21st of March was Harmony Day. Harmony Day is a day to celebrate cultural diversity. It’s about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.
Yesterday our class celebrated the day by sharing things about the different cultures within our class. Isabel, Bree, Bianca, Eason, Eve and Shaykira brought in items for our class and shared with us stories about their families and culture.
As a part of our celebrations we enjoyed trying some homemade traditional foods, looking at artwork, different dances, and currency and learning how to crochet and speak in Chinese, Spanish and Filipino.
Thank you to Eason’s family for making our class dumplings (Chinese), Bianca’s family for cooking Chicken Adobo with rice (Philippines) and Isabel’s family for cooking Empanadas (Chilli). All of the food we had to try was delicious. Thank you to Eve’s gran for teaching us how to crochet too.
It was a fun day learning about different cultures.
