Culture Day

Yesterday, Dudley House School celebrated Culture Day organised by the School Council. During the morning, the children explored and gathered information on a variety of cultures and produced artwork some inspired by artists or other cultures.
In Class 1, they focused on Maori art and learnt part of the traditional dance of the Haka. Class 3 researched Serbia, Morocco and Spain – taking a deeper look into Spanish artists. They produced a Cubist masterpiece inspired by Pablo Picasso. In Class 4 they studied North America, Malaysia and Brazil and explored Romero Britto and his pop art, a happy style that can be seen adorning many commercial products.
After lunch, the children came together and spoke about the diverse community in which we are a part of at Dudley House School, sharing information, costumes and food from home – prepared by the parents and children. Although a small school we have over 15 different cultures represented. All the children proudly spoke about their culture and offered a customary piece of sweet cuisine.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the new dining experience and learning more about each other’s cultures.
