Children of the World Day 2014

Children of the World Day 2014

Little Oaks recently celebrated cultural diversity across the globe. Children came to school dressed as children from different countries around the world adorned with traditional garments to lasso’s from the wild, wild West. We paraded to the Grade R classroom while singing our Continents song and sang ‘hello’ in many different languages. After calling up children from all the countries represented for a photograph, we then enjoyed a variety of performances from different continents. The Belly-dancers dazzled us; Mrs Teggin, the singers and solo recorder player entertained us; and our very own Chinese teacher, Mrs Jing He, enthralled us with Chinese symbols, words, song and dance. Mrs Cross led us in an Irish Dance and Ms Motsoane included us in a traditional dance. Fun was had by all!

While this was all happening, our music room was transformed into a visual and culinary feast! Moms and dads had prepared food from various countries, decorated tables and gone the extra mile to ensure that the children had an authentic experience of countries including Canada, Germany, America, Wales, Scotland, England, Ireland, Germany, Serbia, Greece, France and Japan. Thank you to all the individuals who came together to make our Children of the World Day such a memorable occasion and a very special day.
