Dear Wyngate Parents,
It’s time again to showcase the wonderful diversity of the Wyngate community. By popular demand, we have been able to move this event from October to March so that families have time to prepare for this event and it is not right after school starts. Hope we can have great participation for this event. Last year’s families showcased Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, El Salvador, France, Japan, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Iran, Nicaragua, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Turkey, Trinidad, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Wales.
If you can represent a country or a culture, please consider hosting a table for this fun and vibrant evening. This is a great event for girl or boy scout troop projects. Grandparents, and other family members, are welcome to participate.
- DECORATE A TABLE TO SHOWCASE YOUR COUNTRY/CULTURE – art, textiles/cloth, carvings, instruments, money, stamps, books, children’s games, flags, pictures…; share finger food “specialties” from your country; wear traditional costumes or clothing.
- CULTURAL ENTERTAINMENT– children can sing, dance, play traditional music, read a poem from their country. On this night, Wyngate brings the world to OUR stage!
