- Our annual Multicultural Day is a true celebration of the diversity of our community here at Gymea.
- Students explored an array of stalls set up on our school oval focusing on engaging in a wide range of cultural activities.
Our annual Multicultural Day was a day of celebration, held on Friday 27 October. This event, hosted by our Student Leadership Assembly, has been an annual event for us at Gymea since 2013. It is a chance for our school to celebrate the diversity of our school and to learn about the cultures that exist within our community.
This year meant a few changes to ensure health and hygiene safety, but it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of our staff and students! There was a buzz of energy as our students across the school explored the array of cultural activities on offer through the stalls set up on our school oval. Many of our staff and students got involved to run stalls focused on engaging in cultural activities such as flag painting, yoga, Japanese origami and letter writing, Aboriginal painting and games, Greek evil eyes, friendship bracelet making and more.
Year 7 and 8 were able to explore the cultural stalls during periods 3 and 4 with their teachers who encouraged them to visit as many as they could. The stalls remained open at lunch time for the rest of the school to enjoy along with our Year 10 Rock Band who played to entertain the crowd. A lunch pack of a sausage sandwich or American hot dog was available to purchase, produced by our Year 11 Hospitality students meeting COVID safe guidelines.
Thank you to our SLA for once again hosting a fantastic event and to all of our staff and students who ran stalls or participated in the day.
