International Week: Parade Of Nations and International Festival

We look forward to celebrating our multicultural diversity as a school through our annual International Week commencing 29th January 2017.

**On Wednesday 1st February, the last day of International Week, we will be hosting a Parade Of Nations followed by the PTA International Festival. **

Students are invited to come to school on this day dressed in a National costume or colours of the flag. Parents will also have the opportunity to come to school to view the Parade and visit country stalls with your child. This is a great opportunity to experience the different cultures of many of the countries represented at our school.

Students from FS1 & FS2 will take part in the Parade Of Nations between 11am – 11.30am, and students from Year 1 – Year 13 will participate in the Parade Of Nations between 12 00 noon – 1 00pm. Parents are invited to make their way to the field to watch the Parade at these times. The International Festival, led by the PTA, will then take place between 1pm – 2:45pm and parents are invited to visit the stalls of each country with your child and enjoy their music, games, taste their food and much more.
