Happening Race Relation Day 2012
Race relations day it a big part of Te Aro School’s culture. We are very proud that this day is managed and organised by the student council and house leaders/deputies. This day is always one to remember because it is very fun, especially for the little kids.
Each year we have a wide range of multi cultural activities, this year we had a variety of games including traditional Indian and Samoan. The children always enjoy dressing up in there clothes from their culture and strutting their stuff through the school playground. We always have a race relation day assembly where classes get to show there work on cultural topics.
We make and bring traditional foods from countries around the world and have shared lunches in our class. YUMMY!
Here’s what students have said about the day:
Levi and Nuru from Ruma Rata say: “It’s good for the kids to learn about other people’s culture.”
“It’s fun to see people’s costumes” Said Niamh from Ruma Kowhai.
Isobel from Ruma Rata thinks running the games is fun but a challenge for the seniors.
Beth from Ruma Tarata says “I had really great fun! “
“I liked the parade because we got to see other people’s costumes; Paretao’s was my favourite “says Cole.
Julieta’s mum performed for us a traditional Chilean dance, Julieta says “I was worried my mum would make a mistake but I was proud of her, I haven’t seen her dance like that before.”
“I had fun and I wore a red and white suit.” Says Bilal.
As you can see the students of Te Aro had a great day!
