Thank you to all the parents who came to help us celebrate the wonderful diversity we have at our school. Over 100 parents joined us in the afternoon as the children enjoyed activities such as Indian dance, stick dancing, a blind obstacle course, making diva lamps, drumming and food from different cultures. The activities helped us to recognise that our differences, abilities and disabilities are a strength of our community. The motivational talk from a wheelchair basketballer was really enjoyed by staff and children alike.
Here's what people said about Diversity Day:
‘It’s a great idea so people can learn about different cultures and what it’s like to be in another person’s shoes,’ Kajal Ojha, aged 11.
‘The Caribbean storyteller was great because she had lots of energy and she was funny,’ Kylah Haynes, aged 10.
'Rob Galbraith, the wheelchair basketball player, was really interesting and his background was amazing,’ Daisy Cole-Kenney, aged 10.
'It's really good that you are celebrating that we are all different but that we are all equal.' Just one of the positive comments from a parent.
A big thank you to the parents who helped run some of the activities on the day.
