This month we decided to have a flag contest. Students needed to identify the flags from the 19 nations our students were born in. I’m pretty sure if Our Lady of the Assumption School had done the flag contest 10 years ago our student population would have only represented a few nations.
In doing this flag contest we hoped to show our students how diverse we were and to stress that we may be from different cultures, but together we create the community of Our Lady of the Assumption School.
Also, every student that entered received a treat from our canteen and two luck winner received $20. A small price to celebrate our diversity. I wonder how many nations we will represent five years from now.
