Unity in the Australian community’s cultural diversity was celebrated at Multicultural Day, held by St Hurmizd Assyrian Primary School (SHAPS), Sydney.
Multicultural Day, on 22nd of October, gave the opportunity for the school’s students to find out something new about other cultures, either by simply trying a new culinary taste sensation or watching a traditional dance.
The standard of musical and dance performances in the concert was very high, with students revealing some unbelievable hidden talents.
“We encourage the students to be accepting and to learn of other nationalities,” said a spokesperson for SHAPS.
“Congratulations and thanks to all the teachers and students for their input and participation on the day.”
St Hurmizd Assyrian primary School, which opened in 2002, was founded by His Beatitude Mar Meelis Zaia, Archbishop of the Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East, Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand and Lebanon.
Multicultural Day was an outstanding success and will be a permanent part of the school’s calendar of events.[nggallery id=96]
