This term, our guided inquiry topic is Social Justice – Celebrating Cultures. 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 and celebrate the cultures that already exist in our school, we are organising a ‘Cultural Fair’ for the Year One and Two classes on
Tuesday 13th 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.
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 Wednesday 31st July (we have extended the return date) if you or anyone you know will be available to present on the day…or team up with another parent?
Further details are attached. A hard copy of this note was sent home to families during the last week of Term two.
We had huge success with our Community Fair earlier in the year and are looking forward to making our Cultural Fair even better!
