Grade 3 “My Story, Your Story, Our Story”
As part of our topic, ‘My Story, Your Story, Our Story,’ the Grade 3s have been looking at how people have come from many different countries to Australia. In order for the children to explore the different cultures and traditions in our community, Grade 3 will be celebrating Cultural Cuisine Day on Friday 14th September.
As part of our day of celebration, we would like the children to bring a small plate of food to share for lunch. If possible, it would be wonderful if the plate of cuisine is inspired by a country from your child’s family background. We will be exploring how food links with cultural celebrations and the impact this has had on life in Australia. We are unable to heat food for the lunch; therefore, if you wish to bring along hot food, please bring it to school at 12.00pm. As we would like to minimise waste, children are also asked to bring along their own clearly labelled plate to use to eat their lunch.
When organising your plate, please keep in mind the food will take the place of normal lunch for the day and that all food is to be nut free. A list of ingredients should also accompany the plate. Please ensure that you thoroughly wash items used for food preparation as cross contamination could also trigger an allergic reaction.
Each class will require a parent helper to assist with the lunch. If you are able to help from 12.00pm until 1.00pm on the day, please let your child’s classroom teacher know.
Kind regards, Meagan Cofield, Megan Gerring and Sammy Orchard
