We were invited again for the 3rd year in a row to participate in the grand celebration of Multicultural Day at Albert Park College on 5th December 2014. What a grand celebration and festival it was!
We were all welcomed with a big smile and a traditional welcome “Namaste” with folded hands at the front of the school by the coordinator of Multicultural Day, Mr Wallace Smith. He guided us to the classrooms to prepare for the various workshops.
Once again, we had a very enthusiastic group of presenters who coordinated workshops such as Yoga & Meditation, Indian Cooking, Music & Dance, Traditional wear and Henna Art. All the workshops were very well received with great participation by the high school students.
We had set up a very appetising spread of vegetarian cuisine for lunch in the court yard consisting of fried Rice, kofta balls with chutney and various desserts. The lunchtime activities also included Indian face painting and henna art. Some students even lined up prior to the lunch break as they swiftly formed a large queue at the various activities. The school courtyard was transformed into a festive atmosphere with traditional vedic singing, dancing, and feasting. It was a very enjoyable and memorable experience for all.
The feedback we received from Mr Wallace Smith was very inspiring to our team and it was pleasing to hear that the students really embraced the day.
