Stu­dents at Uni­ver­sal Creighton Charter School at 501 Tabor Road hos­ted their in­aug­ur­al Mul­ti­cul­tur­al Day on May 23 in cel­eb­ra­tion of their own di­versity and di­versity in the com­munity.

Stu­dents em­braced di­versity, cul­tur­al aware­ness, shar­ing tra­di­tions, un­der­stand­ing val­ues and be­liefs, gain­ing a sense of iden­tity and re­cog­niz­ing the con­tri­bu­tions of all eth­ni­cit­ies through dance and mu­sic.

Pu­pils re­searched in­form­a­tion about vari­ous coun­tries and dec­or­ated the hall­ways in European, South Amer­ic­an, Asi­an, Afric­an and Carib­bean themes. They learned about the cus­toms, art, mu­sic, foods and life­styles of oth­ers. ••
