Last Thursday, Holy Name Primary School celebrated Italian Day as part of it’s LOTE (Language other than English) program.
The day brought our school community together and provided further opportunities for the students to learn about the Italian culture, and enhance their awareness and appreciation of it’s language and traditions.
The day began with students dressed creativity in ‘a touch of Italy’ attire. The school was fortunate to have a beautiful display of Italian cars (provided generously by parents in the school community) which served as the perfect backdrop for some memorable photos.
Our parent community generously assisted with the cooking and distribution of italian cuisine to our students. The lunch time meal of pizza and pasta, followed by gelati was appreciated by all and described as bellissimo!
The day contnued in merriment with an Italian performance group, ‘House’ colour activities and soccer match between students and teachers. Our thanks to our Italian teacher, Signora Anna Bregu, for co-ordinating such a memorable event which involved all facets of our school community. Our students have already enquired as to when our next Celebration of Italian will be!
Grazie mille a tutti!
Mr Nick Marinelli, Principal
