Africa Day 2014

Tom Austin School News

We would like to extend our Parents a very happy Africa Day on Sunday and we hope that you enjoy the Public Holiday on Monday. Please note that there is no school on Monday due to the Public Holiday.

Our staff and children had a lovely day today and the staff prepared a beautiful display of African fruits and vegetable, instruments, clothing and curios. The staff also made a great effort to dress for the occasion.

We all enjoyed the Africa Day Celebrations in the Infants Department. It was interesting to see the various nationalities that were represented on the Africa Day Civvies Day. The Infant department teachers all turned up for work in their best African attire much to the children’s amusement. It was also a valuable learning experience as the children visited the cultural display which was put together by the year 2 classes. On display were a variety of African foods including grains and fruit, African musical instruments and African garments. We hope that next year our parents will also contribute to make our displays even richer.
