Celebrating Cultural Diversity with Royal Roads University Students
On October 17, Brookes Westshore was abuzz with laughter, dancing, chatting and games as the Grade 11 students took part in a cultural diversity rotating station activity with 35 pre-master’s students from world renowned neighbouring university, Royal Roads University.
Thirty stations, each with a unique activity related to a different culture, were set up around the Dining Hall. The Grade 11 students visited stations with a “passport” in hand; Angola, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Colombia, India, Iran, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan in just one day!
Coupled with the diverse backgrounds of the Brookes Grade 11 students, the atmosphere was a global celebration. With such a wealth of cultural groups, languages and customs both the high school and university students left the event with a new appreciation and understanding of their international neighbours.
Brookes Westshore celebrates culture and diversity, with over 21 nationalities represented in the School.
