International Week

 

 

INTERNATIONAL WEEK

International Week is my favorite time of the year.  I love the fact that we are a school community with so many rich cultural backgrounds.

In year 7 many of you have been working hard on the Passport to Asia Project and having fun and learning about some wonderful Asian cultures.

During International Week we also share our love for music and dance and the International Week concerts are a great highlight that unites our wonderful school.

Storytelling is also a fantastic rich fabric of our lives.  We can share stories told by many different people in so many different languages.

READING ACTIVITY:

In our next session explore:

 

INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S DIGITAL LIBRARY
