Multicultural Week - Marcellin Campus

Buon giorno, n? h?o, goedendag, gozaimasu, shalom, hola, god dag, salut… to all!
Every year, during Multicultural Week, the Language Department endeavours to bring greater cultural awareness to Newman College through small events that celebrate the blessing of diverse cultures. Multicultural Week historically has been about celebrating individuals that have come from all over the world, as they bring their cultures, values and beliefs to this multi-cultural country of ours - Australia. As Australians we are proud to accept and embrace these differences.
This year throughout Multicultural Week, the students and staff at Newman College have enjoyed a variety of engaging events, including;
  • Viewing a Japanese Anime in the library
  • Listened to the mystical sounds of the Didgeridoo played by an elder from a Noongar Community in WA
  • Taking part in a battle of culinary speed, the Chopstick Spaghetti Eating Competition! Undefeated champion, Mr. Bernie Roberts (Head of Math) reined supreme, proving that: (Mr.Roberts+Spaghetti) + Chopsticks = Speed! Will anyone attempt to take his title next year??
  • A very popular Piñata Competition enjoyed by all participants!
I welcome you to celebrate our unique culture in Australia - Happy Multicultural Week to all!
Roberta Sampson, Language Coordinator
