LEEMING Senior High School and Education Support Centre spent three days last week celebrating the diverse range of cultures from all over the world.

During recess and lunch times, students were treated to traditional Australian and Asian cuisine prepared by some of the Year 12 students, watched a variety of dance and musical performances and had a go at creating their own Chinese lanterns and origami pieces.

Some art students also provided temporary henna tattoos to their peers.

The celebrations culminated on Friday when two artists helped compile individual flags created by each student into three large collages that will remain in the school’s sunken garden.

Leeming Education Support Centre chaplain Maree Hoyle said the popularity of last year’s multicultural day had motivated the school to extend the celebrations over three days.

“As a school, we’ve got students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds,” she said.

“We’ve put up a big map and have given the kids a coloured dot each to show where they come from and they’re all over the world.”
