On 10th September 2014, we were invited to participate in Wellington Secondary College’s annual Multicultural Day. Our evening started off with curious students and staff checking out our Henna and face painting stall and the artist at work. We had the opportunity to chat to a range of students, teachers and parents, including the coordinator Ms Connie Tzelepis – Director of International Programs and School Principal Mr Hugh Blaikie.
We performed kirtan to a large and packed auditorium. Guna Mani Nitai led a very lively kirtan that had the whole audience singing, clapping, and swaying in their seats. Kirtan was accompanied by the wonderful sounds of mrdangas and karats, and everyone singing and dancing along. At the end of the kirtan the auditorium was filled with roaring applause.
After the program we had many students, teachers, and parents come and congratulate us on what they said was a great performance. We also distributed flower garlands to many people who greatly appreciated them.
