Independence 2020

Prep students have been learning about PNG celebrations in the lead up to Independence Day.

We made some sago and banana cake with Ms Matilda’s help. It was great fun mashing the bananas and mixing in the sago, before we wrapped it up in banana leaves to be cooked.

Some of us loved it, some of us didn’t!

This morning, a small ceremony was held to mark the 45th Independence of Papua New Guinea.

Our celebrations were smaller than usual but just as important.

Our thanks to the Prep staff who shared their cultures and dances and to our Grade 5&6 SRC for representing the regions of Papua New Guinea. All students are involved in classroom activities celebrating PNG throughout the week.
