Asia Week celebrations begin on the Campus in Week 5, we’re all getting excited for what we’re sure will be a fantastic week of festivities.
Every two years on Campus, we participate in Asia week to celebrate the cultures, traditions and achievements and contributions of Asia and the Peoples of Asia. This importantly links to the Australian Curriculum’s Cross Curriculum Priority of Asia and Australia’s Engagement with Asia and the capabilities of Intercultural Understanding and Ethical Understanding.
Asia Week Celebrations will begin on Tuesday 21st August (Week 5) with students across Campus attending performances in the Gym. Jarrod’s performances will include Traditional Japanese Comic Storytelling (Rakugo) and Theatre (Kyogen).
On Tuesday 28th August (Week 6), students across Campus will continue to celebrate Asia Week with a Market Day. On Market Day, students are given the opportunity to explore different stalls on the oval and in the gym to enjoy a variety of Asian crafts and games. On Market Day, there will also be a variety of different performances for students to enjoy, such as the Karate Club and Indonesian dancers. After lunch, we will also have an Asian Film Festival in classrooms for students to enjoy.
Each school will also have a Special Asian Lunch Order Day:
