2018 was another dynamic year for MultiPride. Throughout the year students meet once a week and discuss issues and decide on what actions to take.
We began the year with our annual trip to the Point Leo Surf Lifesaving Club. We meet the surf lifesaving team who teach our students to surf. They put a lunch on for us and then we have an annual game of soccer on the beach.
We produced the 15th Polyhood festival in March. The Pasifika students involved feel a great sense of pride performing new and traditional cultural dances, songs and music. The students organise all aspects including administration and backstage.
Students worked through Ramadan to produce the Eid festival celebration at the end of Term 2. This is the 3rd year of the now annual event and after delicious Afghan tea and sweets, the community experienced performances by the students.
At the Lunchtime Asian Festival in August students held various activities including a Bollywood dance class, a K Pop video screening in the theatre and henna tattooing in the canteen annexe.
Our Islander students also participated in the 4Cs festival at Bunjil Place in September and proudly represented the school in this 2 day event that sees students from schools in the area perform together onstage.
Students continue to join our dynamic MultiPride group and wear their Maroon jumper and badge around the school. Students know that they can talk to them in the yard or at any time about issues they are having at the school.
