We are very blessed to have around 38% of our children from Indian homes in our area. This means that we are able to access cultural resources in local Indian food markets. A couple of times a year we love to have the mums (and grandmas!) come in and decorate the childrens' hands with henna tattoos. We usually coincide this with Diwali and/or the Holi festival, but if a school holiday is in the way we go ahead and have fun anyway. This year we even combined it with our school's Funky Feet day for Travelwise awareness. Some kids and one teacher (me) even decorated their feet. We also had our first dad volunteer this year. He was kept busy with spiderweb designs and batman logos on request.
Forever curious, always learning, deep thinking teacher. I am a Year 5 teacher this year and am enjoying the transition after 3 years with New Entrants.
