2024 United Nations Day: Canterbury College Multicultural Celebration | Event Wrap & First Release Photos!

2024 United Nations Day: Canterbury College Multicultural Celebration | Event Wrap & First Release Photos!

More than 1,650 ELC – Year 12 students, 300 staff and 945 parents, carers, siblings, relatives, family friends and alumni from Canterbury College’s fast-growing Logan school community, have transformed their campus Events Centre into a major one-day multicultural festival.

The private coeducational Anglican school’s final day of Term 2 featured their newly annual United Nations Day, to truly celebrate the College’s estimated 80 dialects from 60 different countries, represented by an extremely diverse international student body.

“United Nations Day is not a typical style of school event,” Principal Mr Dan Walker said.

“As an event that now attracts nearly 2,900 participants, it is enormous and welcoming.

“Our school is in the centre of Logan City, the most diverse city in Queensland, and one of the most diverse in Australia.

“And that is why UN Day at Canterbury College is so important, as it works from the basic assumption that from all the lands on earth, many chose to make Australia their home.

“Yet we all still hold onto the culture, language, kinship, tradition and religion from our past.”

Now in its fourth year, after very humble beginnings in 2020 under heavy COVID restrictions, Canterbury’s UN Day now features 20 traditional cuisines originating from Africa, Polynesia and the Pacific Islands, The Americas, Western and Eastern Europe, Australasia and every Asian region – entrees, mains and desserts proudly prepared and served by school parents and friends.

Complementing the global food and drink stalls, was a full on-stage 2.5-hour performance schedule covering dances, music and songs from Malaysia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Samoa, India, Tonga, China, South Korea, the Philippines, Cook Islands, Fiji and Africa.

These performances were all choreographed and rehearsed by the students themselves, with a little help from their friends, siblings and parents.

The festival followed the College’s opening formal ceremony which included a First Nations’ Welcome To Country and Smoking Ceremony with the didgeridoo, performed by the local Indigenous Mununjali and Logan Elders – from proud clans of this region’s Yugambeh people.

Senior School Global Studies Teacher Mrs Jennifer Wu – Taiwanese-born with a Korean husband she met while they were both working in Japan – was the event guest speaker, who recounted her 30 years’ experience absorbing Australia’s very different norms, culture and language.

Principal Mr Dan Walker’s official address covered how Canterbury College is ‘Different Together’ – explaining how not being all the same is the school’s greatest strength.

That regardless of religion, gender, sexuality or culture, students and families have a home at Canterbury.

And that we draw on these different life experiences, stories, backgrounds and values to learn from one another and to make our community stronger.

The event was blessed by Canterbury’s College Chaplain Father Dan Talbot and VIP guest – Anglican Bishop John Roundhill, before the ceremonial highlight of the official ‘Parade Of Nations Flag Ceremony’, where students carried the flag of their cultural background through the large crowd and onto the stage for display.

Other cultural activities included a special Indigenous dance performance, Indigenous weaving, an interactive Digital Map Of Origin where guests plotted their traditional home cities on a world map, Indian henna tattoos, face painting, plus various arts and crafts.

UN Day is now easily the biggest Canterbury College school community event and looks set to only expand with each passing year.

“When we celebrated this event for the first time in 2020, there were four dance numbers and about 40 plastic chairs laid out in front of the school canteen,” Principal Mr Dan Walker said.

“Most in the community didn’t even know it was on, and at the end of that day, the organising teacher Mr Chris Nield and I thought we ‘might’ be onto something, but weren’t even sure it would happen again.”

“But it has grown, boy oh boy, it has grown. I can now see a future when this event could be one of the pre-eminent cultural and food festivals in Logan.

“That would be a remarkable thing for our school community and for this city.”

Proceeds from the day are going to the Multicultural Australia Work & Welcome Program.

Meet Our United Nations Day Event MCs | By Year 12 Student Emerald Kaing

Meet Our United Nations Day Event MCs | By Year 12 Student Emerald Kaing

Hello Canterbury Community,

As one of the proud student MCs at our upcoming United Nations Day Multicultural Celebration on Friday 14 June, I’ve asked my fellow student MCs to write a short blurb about themselves.

This way we know a little more about them and how they’ve contributed to our past UN Days…

Starting with me…

 

Emerald Kaing (Year 12)

1. What is your cultural background?

I am half Cambodian and half Teochew Chinese.

2. What has been your previous involvement with past UN Days?

I’ve always been involved since the very first event in 2020!

I’ve brought food and represented my cultural heritage in traditional dress.

3. What do you love about UN Day?

I love seeing all the amazing cultural attire, as well as the plethora of delicious foods.

Afterall, food is a love language for many cultures.

4. What will you bring to the role of MC?

I like to think my MCing is very ‘go with the flow’ and I love a bit of humour and banter with my fellow MCs and the audience.

But my favourite part about MCing is the opportunity to ensure things are going smoothly and on time!

 

Tadiwa Manangazira (Year 12)

1. What is your cultural background?

I identify primarily with my Zimbabwean nationality.

2. What has been your previous involvement with past UN Days?

Over the past two years, I've been actively involved in the African dance segment, dancing alongside individuals who share a deep cultural connection with me.

3. What do you love about UN Day?

It offers a unique opportunity to celebrate the rich diversity of our backgrounds and embrace the differences that make each of us unique.

4. What will you bring to the role of MC?

I’m a ‘Learner’, so I want to know a piece of information from each and every country participating in this year’s United Nations Day.

I will try not to display any A+ Level Yapping Skills up on stage.

 

Morwary Kamali (Year 12)

1. What is your cultural background?

Afghan heritage.

2. What has been your previous involvement with past UN Days?

At every UN Day, I have brought food along and helped other countries with distributing their food on the day.

3. What do you love about UN Day?

I love to see how diverse our school is, with the amazing cultures and different foods in our Canterbury community.

Not only is it an eventful day full of performances, but a memorable day that we will always remember after we graduate.

4. What will you bring to the role of MC?

As a passionate public speaker, I will bring enthusiasm, energy and the ability to connect with the audience, making sure everyone stays engaged and entertained.

 

Ayesha To’o Tufuga (Year 11)

1. What is your cultural background?

Samoan heritage.

2. What has been your previous involvement with past UN Days?

Since the first event in 2020, I have provided food, danced on stage and even been an MC in 2022.

3. What do you love about UN Day?

I love how UN Day gives the students within Canterbury the opportunity to showcase their cultures, dances, foods and practices to the rest of the school.

I also love how it brings students together to collaborate and bond during the planning and rehearsing of the event.

4. What will you bring to the role of MC?

I think that my positive aura enables me to be loud and vibrant when MCing.

I often like to include audience interactions and bring some fun and laughs into the event.

I’m actually really excited for this year’s event!

As a student that has participated in UN Day previously, I know that it gets bigger and better every year.

 

Regards,

Emerald Kaing
Year 12 Canterbury Student

What is SPARK?

SPARK is an elective-based ‘hands-on’ curriculum for Years 5 and 6 students that is unique to Canterbury.

Each semester our students choose a special subject to study.

Then students from both year levels are combined into the same classroom and taught by relevant staff.

SPARK is about building curiosity, encouraging students to try something new, and providing an exceptional opportunity for them to embark on their own learning journey, as part of their ‘World Ready’ Canterbury education.

When does SPARK occur?

SPARK happens once per week, with students encouraged to continue their learning beyond the classroom.

How does SPARK link to the curriculum?

SPARK focuses on the Australian Curriculum’s general capabilities, looking at critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability, ethical understanding and intercultural understanding.

How can I see my child’s learning?

The Junior School hosts a learning exhibition at the end of each semester, where all students will have something to exhibit based on their SPARK sessions.
