Beverly Hills Intensive English Centre & Narwee Public School Cultural Exchange Program

Beverly Hills IEC and Narwee Public School established links in 2006. Students have been working through peer tutor programs aimed at developing leadership capacity, interfaith understanding, and an appreciation of the contribution of culturally diverse communities to Australia.

ACTIVITIES in 2008

Through student-centred activities in dance, drama and music, students of Narwee Public School and Beverly Hills IEC are gaining a shared understanding of the influence of cultural and linguistic heritages on the personal identities of all students.

• Students at both schools participate in a peer support program each Wednesday morning for 30 minutes.

• Students work together with a music teacher to compose a piece of music that reflects their understanding of harmony.

• Students are learning a collection of dances and songs representing the cultural groups of the schools.

• Students will present their songs and dances at an Education Week Showcase. This program and the celebration during Education Week will support the work we are jointly undertaking to develop and maintain respect, goodwill and understanding between Australians of all cultures.
