Nelson Mandela once said “My dream would be a multicultural society, one that is diverse and where every man, woman, and child are treated equally. I have a dream of a world where all people of all races work together in harmony” Multicultural Week was organized to celebrate the diversity and bring multicultural awareness among the students & the wider community. Multicultural education is a set of strategies and materials in education that provides students with knowledge about the histories, cultures, and contributions of diverse groups; it assumes that the future society is pluralistic. It is also viewed as a way of teaching, as it promotes principles such as inclusion, diversity, democracy, skill acquisition, inquiry, critical thought, the value of perspectives, and self-reflection. It encourages students to bring aspects of their cultures into the classroom and thus, allows our teachers to support the child’s intellectual and social/emotional growth.
“In diversity there is beauty and there is a strength.”
