Culture Day 2024

29 February

Yesterday marked a remarkable and culturally enriching day as our student council spearheaded yet another successful Culture Day. This annual event continues to thrive, promoting the celebration and understanding of diverse cultures within our dynamic college community.

Embracing Diversity Through Food: Culture Day 2024 saw students delving into the heart of cultural expression through traditional cuisines. The aroma of diverse dishes filled the air, symbolising the passage of culinary traditions from one generation to the next. The event successfully showcased how food becomes a conduit for preserving cultural identity, especially in the face of immigration.

Harmony of Cultural Music: The melodies of cultural music resonated throughout the second floor, acting as a universal language that transcended boundaries and beautifully conveyed the depth of human expression. By curating a playlist that represented each continent, students showcased the profound power of music to educate and evoke emotions, thereby emphasising the vast diversity inherent in musical traditions worldwide.

Cultural Expression Through Fashion: Culture Day became a colourful canvas as students dressed themselves in cultural attire, transforming the campus into a visually vibrant display of diverse fashion. The attire reflected the norms and values of each culture, embodying the uniqueness and individuality of each student.

Visual Delight Across Campus: Posters and banners covered the college, adding visual vibrancy and educational value to the celebration. Flags fluttered proudly outside the gateway, symbolising the inclusive spirit that Culture Day promotes. The library and gateway became hubs of cultural exploration, fostering an environment of respect and open-mindedness.

Through shared experiences, we continue to educate ourselves on the different perspectives that make up our global community.
