  1. Hi there

    This is Esaine, the Settlement Worker based at NRP & UHS here. With regards to Multicultural Day, I’m just wondering if you would like to have representation of a booth with Arabic or Egyptian cultural display? In our team, we’ve had something displayed at other school multicultural fair before. I can ask my colleagues if you wish.


    1. Hi Essaine. It is Jody. We would love to have that representation! I know a parent from Saudi Arabia and wasngoing to talk to her as well.
      On a side note I emailed you yesterday with a bit of info for the leadership group. Hoping you got it but it looked like the email kicked back to me.
