A Celebration of Culture

What a wonderful way to end off our celebration of Cultural awareness this month. We had a great effort from some of our children who came dressed in their traditional attires from their ethnic background. In our Kinder classroom we have children who are Australian Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander, also from Scotland, England, Sweden, Poland, Indonesia, India, Iraq and New Zealand. Our Kindergarten children are from all over the world, it has been great celebrating each other while we learned about each others cultures in Music, Dance, Clothes, Houses and Food, while learning different languages too!

Harmony Day has also been a part of our Celebration as we teach our children to live harmoniously with one another. There are so many different cultures that make Australia, and it is our job as teachers to encourage our children to respect one another.ย 


In this learning experience, children gain insight and understanding of who they are and who they are yet to become in the near future. Children learning a second language or for some learning a third is a great aspect to their learning development and having this exposure to their community makes them become capable and confident learners. Children establish and maintain respectful, trusting relationships with other children and educators.ย
