Welcome to St. Emilie’s International Airport! Please make your way to Gate 4 for boarding!
This term, we were lucky enough to perform our ‘Around the World’ themed assembly item to our school community. Prior to this performance, we researched a selection of different countries within our world. These countries included: The United States of America, India, Greece, China and of course, our very own, Australia. We discovered that in each of these different countries, the people gathered together for different celebrations including: Thanksgiving, Dewali, Name Day, Chinese New Year and Australia Day.
We worked together to find interesting facts about each celebration, to then use as part of our script for the assembly.
We also had the opportunity to look closely at the flags of our chosen country. We researched the significance of colours, lines and shapes.
Some of the countries dance together during the celebrations. We had fun trying out some of the international dances.
Isabel was kind enough to lend us her traditional Chinese dragon puppet for the assembly. We thought it looked great, and also holds great significance within the Chinese New Year festivities.
We couldn’t forget our very own ‘land down under’ to return home to, after our big trip! Australia has many great stories, as well as celebrations, that we are proud to be involved in. We all had an opportunity to share what our families like to do on special celebration days, which included a lot of barbecues and swimming in the pool!
We hope you had as much fun as we did, travelling around our wonderful world!
