Students and staff dressed in clothing that they associate with their culture, embracing national, international, and local heritage. Others chose to dress up as inspirational and well-known people from the areas where they live or where they, or their family, were born.
Multicultural Day is always a huge success, encouraging meaningful discussions about what makes each of us unique, as well as recognising our common interests and increasing our knowledge so that we can become more inclusive in our thoughts and actions.
We hope you enjoy this beautiful poem written by Suhaila, one of our students, to mark our 2023 Multicultural Day:
We Are Not Rivals
War fled as unity spread in mankind,
surely nothing will be of those who segregate us.
So, rejoice at the endurance of your people,
their patience will not go unnoticed.
Suffrage is soon to end,
justice is yet to come,
so do not be ashamed of what they claim of your culture.
So, raise each other’s flags beneath sunlight,
your diversity is like no other,
look amongst yourselves with content,
and remain unflawed.
liberty is soon to bloom.
Do not despair in bloodshed or famines.
Laugh at the face of your oppressors,
smear a smile on your face
and trace the path of victory,
indeed, victory transpires behind union.
So, unite, nations from the south, the north, the east, the west,
you are not here as rivals
but as companions.
