Moonah Primary’s magnificent multicultural movement

THERE was a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds at Moonah Primary School last month during a celebration of diversity and togetherness.

Moonah Primary School’s third annual Multicultural Feast invited families to bring a dish from their culture or a culture of their choice to share with the school community.

During the event various cultural groups displayed special items, with performances from Hobart’s Taiko drummers and Polynesian and Bhutanese dancers.

Moonah Primary School principal Angela Miezitis said the Multicultural Feast was a wonderful celebration of a diverse and inclusive community.

“We are rapt that each year this event is becoming more diverse and more of a joyous celebration of our fabulous multicultural community,” she said.

“A wide range of cultures, including Bhutanese, Chinese, Maori, Irish, Sri Lankan, Aboriginal and Dutch, were represented on the day.

“As the sign on one of the food plates said, ‘we have boundless plains to share’, and this is an important message in our global community currently.”
