Grades 4 and 5 students from St. Gabriel  Elementary School in Point St. Charles,  along with Spiritual Community Animator Veronica D’Agata, organized a wonderful multicultural festival recently with the focus placed on five countries: Australia, China, Egypt, India, and Italy. The students were responsible for presenting information such as customs, traditions, clothing, religion, languages  and so on. The goal of this project was to explore and appreciate how various countries and cultures differ from each other. In turn, promoting an understanding of the cultures; thereby absolving prejudice, thus practicing the virtues of respect and tolerance of diversity. Overall, the children had a genuine interest in learning about these differences. The entire school , as well as invited parents, truly enjoyed this multi-cultural day!
