BSPS @ Wakakirri!

Congratulations to our amazing Wakakirri team of students, teachers, and parents. Your skills in dance, drama, public speaking, art, hair, make-up, stage-handing and so much more were essential in getting us there. This year, we earned awards for participation, public speaking, the spirit of Wakakirri, and the social media competition for our week – what a buzz!

Highlights: Multicultural Day and Creative Arts Exhibition

On Thursday, September 19, Belmore South Public School celebrated our Multicultural Day and Creative Arts Exhibition for 2013. It was a fantastic opportunity for our amazing school community of staff, students, caregivers, family and friends to come together and celebrate some of what makes us special.

The celebrations began with an art gallery, consisting of a spectacular array of two and three dimensional artworks designed and created by individual students, as well as some collaborative works from local artists, student groups and some staff members. Many of these artworks also included an interactive or technological component such as the use of QR codes to link to relevant background information, student commentaries, and behind the scenes images of the creation of the artworks. (Some class examples: K-Darling, K-Swan, S1-CometS2-MississippiS2/3-Amery)

The day continued through to a delicious multicultural feast prepared and served by our dedicated parent and community volunteers, with hundreds of people savouring the delights available. The culmination of the days events was a performing arts extravaganza, with song and dance from several cultural groups from our school including our Greek and Arabic community language students, and Pacific Islander dance groups representing nations such as Tonga, Samoa, and the Cook Islands.

Some highlights of the celebrations can be found here, and also check out the image gallery below.

Thank you to everyone who made this day possible!
