Under 8s Day

On Friday 24 May our Early Years Community came together to celebrate Under 8s Day. Students from P-2 joined with their families, our C&K and other local childcare centres to ‘Celebrate the diversity of languages within the home, culture and community’. This year’s Under 8s theme was a fabulous chance to see what being ‘internationally minded’ looks like in our Primary Years Program.


The day kicked off with a special assembly where students were read Mem Fox’s Whoever You Are. They reflected on the diverse multicultural community that we are fortunate enough to belong to here at CCC. Next it was time to explore the exciting activities and learn about many of the different ways we can communicate. Children had opportunities to communicate through music, dance and art, practise calligraphy and Chinese character writing. Families could hear new languages, share their own mother tongue and learn AUSLAN. Much fun was had! A big thank you goes to the Lower Junior staff, Secondary teachers and students, parent volunteers and our families for coming together to create such a great day.
