The annual celebration showcased the different backgrounds of students and the school’s mix of cultures, languages, dress and foods.

Board of management chairman Peter Laurence said it was a day students looked forward to with great anticipation and demonstrated the respect students had for other cultures.

‘It was a day to be truly proud of the college’s cultural heritage and diversity,’ he said.

The day began with a parade of nations, during which flags representing the home countries of students enrolled at the school were carried.

Special guests, who were treated to a program of song, dance and martial arts, included the Federal Member for Tangney Dennis Jensen, Bateman MLA Matt Taylor, Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey and members of the consular corps from Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

After the performances, guests were invited to sample traditional foods prepared by students and staff.
