In 2015, Cultural Infusion performed a traditional Chinese lion dance for students at the Bomaderry High School Asia expo.
“We travel all over this country performing, but we always make sure we return to this school because they have the best students.” – cultural infusion performers
4E ‘Refugee Story Boat’ arrived at the 2015 Asia expo!
Students in 4E explored the concept of multiculturalism, identity and immigrant experiences through the exploration of a variety of texts.
In 2016, at the Asia expo, 4E English students used their understanding of the immigrant experience to present their creative project ‘The Refugee Story Boat’ to share their understanding and awareness of this issue with primary school students.
This included suitcases with hand made items based upon their understanding of the migrant experience. Journal entries and a creative story was presented to visiting primary school students. Multi-media formats and creative learning activities were used to enhance the experience of their immigrant story.
“The Asia expo was an inspiring experience full of cultural activities. There were Chinese lion dancers and many other amazing performances. 4E students interacted with many primary school students and created an ‘Immigration Story Boat’. I love the 4E program because it is interesting, creative and you get to work with older students.” – Zara 4E student.
