International Cultural Festival
On Monday, 28 November, Invicta held its third annual International Cultural Festival – our biggest to date! The school community celebrated their vibrant cultures by setting up stalls showcasing different countries. Students represented 32 different countries, displaying their customs, traditions, food, costume, language and many other cultural aspects.
In the morning, 150 students from seven local primary schools were invited to learn all about each country, listen to traditional music, see some beautiful traditional outfits and taste lots of traditional food! The primary school students each had a passport and visited stalls representing New Zealand, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Bulgaria, Russia, Poland, Brazil, France, Spain, Germany, Nepal, India, Italy, Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, The USA, Japan, Algeria, The Philippines, Romania, South Africa, Vietnam, Thailand, Lithuania, Sweden, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. All Invicta students had the opportunity during lunch time to participate in the festival and share with their friends the school’s diverse and rich heritage.
Head Teacher Mrs Derrick said: “We would like to thank the students, parents and teachers who have worked so hard to make the festival a success.”
