Students look at Multicultural Fair displayStudents embraced their own culture and shared it with classmates, teachers and families on Thursday evening at the Columbia Multicultural and Tolerance Fair. The event created a showcase for students to educate others through poster presentations, authentic clothing, food and music.

Special demonstrations included:

  • Irish Dancing – Ainsley Clinton
  • Indian Dancing – Praaghya Meyyan
  • Punjabi Dancing – Gurleen Kaur
  • Indian Dancing – Shruti Kamat
  • Cultural Music Interludes – Ekansh Agrawal, Thomas Breimer, Lucas Church and Simon O’Connor

“I was honored last night to help students coordinate the 3rd Multicultural and Tolerance Fair for Columbia High School,” said Columbia Social Studies teacher Wendy McAlonie. “This night allows students to share and celebrate their unique cultures in a positive way while reminding all of us that diversity and tolerance is a core value in our education system. This year we had several students emphasize the tolerance aspect of the fair by creating displays on autism awareness and celebrating the Unified Basketball team. I truly believe this event is enriching and will continue to bring the school and community together for years to come.”

Special thanks to the Columbia High School Social Studies faculty, Columbia administrators, the custodial staff and Savannah Alam, Dua Imam and Bailey Tator.
