Early Years Campus Weekly Update - Early Years Campus Weekly Update

Dear Parents,

Last Friday, we celebrated International Day, which was a wonderful way to highlight the many cultures represented in our school community. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn about diverse customs and countries around the world.

I would like to extend a big thank you to all the parents who volunteered their time to share and teach the children about their countries. Your participation was invaluable, and the children greatly enjoyed learning directly from you about your cultural traditions and experiences.

I would also like to express our sincere gratitude to all the parents for supporting the children as they proudly paraded around the campus to begin the day's activities. It was a delight to see the children showcase their vibrant costumes from around the world and celebrate the rich diversity of our school community.

Throughout the day, the children "flew" to the different "countries" represented in each classroom. In Japan, they learned about the seasons and the iconic cherry blossom, and they even had the chance to create their own traditional Japanese fans. In Brazil, the children explored the diverse wildlife and popular sports, including a lively tabletop football game.

In Poland and Germany, the parents shared fascinating details about the local cuisine, the country's renowned racing cars, beloved animals, and impressive castles. The children also participated in a quiz, eager to test their newfound knowledge about these European nations.

When the children "flew" to Australia, they discovered the unique wonders of koalas, kangaroos, boomerangs, and the Indigenous Aboriginal culture. In China, the children embraced the opportunity to make their own noodle dish, create a traditional dragon boat, and play classic Chinese games.

Finally, in Hong Kong, the children embarked on an exploration of the iconic Hong Kong Island, tried their hand at fishing, and even had the chance to participate in a vibrant Lion dance.

It was a day filled with immersive cultural activities, helping the children to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the diverse tapestry of cultures represented in our school community.

Once again, thank you to all the parents and friends who joined us for this very special occasion. Your support and participation are greatly appreciated.
