Building a Multicultural School in Deryneia

After developing an Action Plan towards a multicultural school, teachers, parents and students of the Elementary School Deryneia A' started putting their plans into practice. Teachers gathered interactive and inter-cultural exercises and applied them in selected lessons. An international cooking day gave all the pupils the taste of cultural diversity. Parents spent their morning in the school's kitchen to prepare traditional recipes from their home country, while the pupils were learning how to pronounce the cakes and pies, and were looking up the countries on the globe before everyone could enjoy the delicious tastes. A very clear statement to the entire school community was made through the painting of the schoolyard's wall: "All Different - All Equal", designed and painted by the pupils themselves. Another highlight was the selection of games from various countries that the pupils began to practice during their sports lessons. Besides the rules of the games the pupils also practiced to say the name and certain phrases required in order to perform the game in the language of the country the game originates. The school year ended with a multicultural school festival, passing on the message of "All Different - All Equal".
