Calling for more volunteers!
Cultural Fair – Year One and Two
Thursday 10th August – 9-10am School Hall
Our guided inquiry topic this term is Social Justice. As a part of our exploration into the concept of Social Justice, we are focusing on multiculturalism and the development of empathy, understanding and interest in those from different cultures.
In order to explore the cultures that exist in our school, we are organising a ‘Cultural Fair’ for the Year One and Two classes on Thursday 10th August. We are inviting all parents, grandparents and friends to be presenters at our fair.
Presenters will be asked to share their knowledge and experiences of a particular culture to small groups of children. During the fair, the children will be rotating around to the various ‘stalls’ to learn as much as they can about the various cultural backgrounds that exist in our school community.
You are more than welcome to team up with another parent and present information on your culture together!
Examples of what you may present are;
– cooking demonstration / foods from other cultures
– traditional dance, instruments or music
– traditional games
– items of cultural significance
– traditional clothing or costumes
– photographs of significant buildings / places
– books or songs in another language
Please return the attached form by Friday 28th July to your class teacher if you are able to attend.
We are looking forward to having many of our families represented at our Cultural Fair and just know that the children will REALLY appreciate your efforts … if you are feeling nervous or unsure please do not hesitate to let us know and we will reassure you! 🙂
Thank you to those parents who have already signed up – we can’t wait to learn about your cultural heritage!
