On Friday, June 21, the students celebrated International Day by dressing in multicultural outfits and sharing meals from different nations.

Students brought in a dish from their country of origin and the canteen organisers put on a multicultural menu.

‘It came about because our student prime minister, Danna Torres of Venezuela, promised in her election speech that she would hold an International Day to celebrate the diversity of our school,’ Principal Betty McNeill said.

The day’s festivities included a school parade, singing and dancing and an international morning tea.

More than 600 students took part.
