Various cultures and nationalities were represented at the open afternoon at PLC Armidale.

MORE than 200 current and prospective students (and some parents), PLC passports in hand, gathered at PLC Armidale Junior School’s annual Open Afternoon to experience the various cultures and cuisines from around the globe.

As they entered the school, the young “travellers” were greeted by Pilot (aka Head of Junior School) Ainslie Breckenridge, and her dedicated flight attendants and crew, where they were then escorted to the flight deck to watch an entertaining “in-flight, internationally themed” drama performance, which was all scripted and delivered by the engaging Year 9 and 10 PLC Armidale elective drama class.

The performance was then followed by time in each of the classrooms showcasing a different continent: Asia, Oceania, Scandinavia, Middle East, South America, music from around the world, through various activities, games, songs and food.

“In this increasingly globally connected world, it’s important to afford our young girls of tomorrow with an understanding, appreciation and taste of different cultures and cuisines,” Head of Junior School, Ainslie Breckenridge, said.
