At Long Bay College we really value the diversity the International students bring with them to the school.
We celebrate their many wonderful cultures and languages and are very proud of our inclusive environment. Whether the students are at Long Bay College to focus on their studies and achieve NCEA or whether they come to improve their English and experience our Kiwi lifestyle, they bring a global perspective to our college. They make life-long friends here and gain a positive insight into New Zealand, which they will take back with them to their friends and families in their home countries.
Our annual International Festival is 3 days of cultural activities, experiences and fun across the whole school and community with so many people showcasing their own cultures, celebrating our diversity, and getting involved. From the Chinese wishing wall, bicultural and multicultural workshops, international music and multilingual signage, to the Cultural Fusion, International Food Market and Multicultural Show, there is something for everyone to get involved in.
The Multicultural Show is two amazing evenings of a wide range of entertainment from all over the world. Through musical performances, dance, songs, skits and even a bit of Kung Fu, the show is a beautiful representation of the diversity of cultures and talents we have at Long Bay College. From Asia to South America, Europe to the Pacific Islands, a quick trip to South Africa before then heading back home to New Zealand again, the Multicultural Show truly is a trip around the world!
