Cultural Focus Week
Cultural Focus Week at St. Matthew's took place this month with a focus on the
incredible diversity of the African continent. There have been a variety of assemblies
planned (including a performance by Onye Onyemaechi), authentic
African artifacts on display in JBH and the Library, hands-on arts and crafts
and activities, as well as other cultural displays on the school campus.
put together by our DSPA Diversity Committee and their Parent Volunteers.
Our planning committee put together an amazing virtual
African experience: there were posters of change makers,
life size cutouts of African flora and fauna, color by number
sheets of famous Africans (a different one each day to complete),
as well as a photo slideshow behind the front reception desk
showcasing those in our community with a personal connection to Africa.
