Noble Park Secondary College’s vast diversity was celebrated at a day-and-night Customs and Culture Concert on 1 August.

Many of the 52 cultures within the student population were represented, including from China, Italy, Pakistan, New Zealand, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cook Islands, United Kingdom, Korea, India and Afghanistan.

During the day concert, students performed traditional songs and dances to local primary school pupils.

In the evening, more than 600 people watched the performance.

Among the guests were students and teachers from sister-school Shiminato Senior High School in Japan. They also performed a medley of Japanese songs.

“Guests were in awe of the performances, and the talent that was showcased throughout the concert,” a college spokesperson said.
