The Year 6 Taste of Asia Day is the next best thing to being there!

The last day of Term Three saw the Year 6 vicinity transformed into a little Asia. The colours of students and adults in stunning costumes, the red lanterns hanging from the Quad balcony and the decorations in each room/country were bright and inviting. Smells wafted around the College as thousands of dumplings and curries with roti bread were being cooked ready for mouth watering customers.

The Holi Colour Run – a celebration of spring - at the end of the day was a whole lot of fun and students went home for the September holidays as colours of the rainbow.

The Year 6 teachers would like to thank these people in particular for running an activity for our students and enabling them to experience something so authentic:

  • Meditation - Sonam Denzongpa-Bathols
  • Chinese Dumpling making – Idy Chan and her 20 friends!
  • Indian Culture – Pam Chauhan, Isha Gupta and Malabika Sarmah and friends
  • Arakan Martial Arts – Robert Kyaw and friends
  • Japanese Culture – Seriko & Makato Ijuin and friends
  • Thai Culture - Katie Chirathivat-Geralds and friends
  • Chinese Calligraphy – Mr Matt Eddy

We also appreciate the help of Martin in our Ray Kitchen for enabling the feeding of about 150 people at lunchtime within the standards required. We also appreciate the Grounds Staff and Mrs Sherry Wilson for the set up required for such a big day.

Every now and then, amongst the business that is Somerset College it is important to stop and reflect on the opportunities that we can create together. Year 6 ‘A Taste of Asia Day’ was one of those days. We are grateful.
