Multi-Cultural Day and Evening 28th June 2022: NAL
Slough and Eton’s Multi-cultural evening offers distinct and valuable experience enriched with ethnic diversity of our school’s community. At this event, students take pride in showcasing the integration of cultures at S+E working exquisitely together as one community. Our students celebrate their vibrant cultures by dressing up in their cultural clothes during the day and having great conversations focused on learning about each other’s culture and ethnicity. In the afternoon and evening a big celebration takes place in the form of performances such as cultural music, dance, play, comedy, poetry, presentations by students and staff to exhibit their cultures from the stage to a packed audience.
This year multicultural day and evening event was more special as it was coming back on the stage after a couple of years of COVID restrictions.
Some of our guests and governors have commented on the event;
"May I be the first to congratulate the whole team who put together the Multicultural Evening last night. I’m told it has been running for many years and is a staple in the S and E calendar."
"I really enjoyed it, so good to see young people own the space in that way."
And how could I email Governors without shining a light or our very own teacher governor, Ali.
"He repped it well for us as Governors! If you are old enough to remember the song “I’m Too Sexy For My Shirt” it will give you a bit of an idea of what vibe we are talking about although, rest assured, it was just the waistcoat that was flung off, the shalwar kameez stayed in place.
"Can I echo Julie's congratulations for last night's event? The energy in the hall was amazing, and every act or presentation was celebrated and affirmed so enthusiastically by the whole school community. It spoke volumes of the culture of acceptance in the school and displayed the students' gifts, leadership and maturity.
It was a privilege to be present and I will endeavour not to be so under-dressed next time!
Well done everyone."
Well done for such a successful multicultural evening. It was great to see this back on after two years. The students and staff put on an inspiring show demonstrating many talents!
Please pass on our thanks to all those involved including everyone working behind the scenes for many months.
The New Year promises to bring more lights, camera, action music, dance and drama in a fusion that will blow your minds. Save up for your ticket to this magical, diverse event of the year!
