We warmly invite our Amesbury School whānau to join us for our Amesbury Cultural Showcase 2022. This will take place at Amesbury School on 25th + 27th October from 9:30am-11:00am. We look forward to seeing you there!
Our third inquiry for 2022 is Living in a Global World and asks 2 main questions:
To answer the first question we have created a Cultural Showcase. This event is to celebrate the many cultures throughout Amesbury School and will allow for whānau to travel around “The World”. Rather than a traditional production, whānau will be able to move through the different learning spaces experiencing music, drama, visual arts, dance and more.
Our showcase will be divided into the following regions: Aotearoa, Africa, Asia, The Americas, Europe, Middle East, The Pacific Islands, and South East Asia.
Similar to our electives, students have been working collaboratively with kaiako (teachers) and ākonga (students) from across the school. Each region will offer a look into 2 student-chosen countries and present what they have learned in a culturally respectful way. Whānau should be able to leave each space having heard the language, learned some new facts, and understood the contribution each culture has made to the world.
We want our community to have the best interactive experience possible, which does mean we must limit numbers at any given time.
There are 2 days for whānau to choose from:
Bookings are required and expressions of interest can be made through this form by Tuesday 18th October. You will be contacted with the number of tickets you have.
