On Tuesday 27 September, Unity Community Primary held their first annual International Day.
The day was a resounding success and was well supported by local families. Children and staff all came to school wearing the colours of their flag or dressed in their National dress. The event kicked off with a fashion show, then children spent time with each teacher learning about different countries across the world. After, the children spent time with each teacher learning about different countries of the world, while the day ended with a fabulous international feast. Parents brought tasty dishes from their own countries for all the staff and children to try!
At Unity, 67 per cent of children are international new arrivals, speaking 16 different languages. This means that there is a great opportunity for staff, children and parents to learn, recognise and celebrate the diverse backgrounds and cultures that make up the school.
School Principal Jude Lee said: “Our first international day was a fantastic success. It was wonderful to see so many of our families coming together and sharing food from all over the world. We hope to make International Day an annual event.”
