Multiculturalism in Years 3-4  

Renier Welgemoed and Inoka Rajapakse came to speak to Year 3 and Year 4 students about the similarities and differences between their countries of birth and Australia. From Renier we learnt a lot about South Africa, it is seven times smaller than Australia but it has more than double the amount of people. Some people in rural areas have to walk two hours to get to school and another two hours to get back to their house after school.    

Inoka lived in Sri Lanka, she went to two schools. One in a rural community and one in Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, the Capital City. She went to a girl’s school. Inoka told us about how strict the teachers were. We really enjoyed the talks and want to say thank you to Renier and Inoka (Eddie’s dad and Himesh’s mum) for coming and talking to us.  We learnt a lot.
