OCEAN Grove Primary School celebrated everything Asian with a day of Bollywood dancing, yoga and costumes on 24 June.
The Asian Day – the school’s second – is the brainchild of teacher Jo Ellis, who said it was about making the children “citizens of the world”.
“It’s so they can learn about our overseas neighbours,” she said.
“It’s good for them to be exposed to cultural differences and become more tolerant.”
Jo said the day was part of the school’s Indonesian curriculum.
Local parent Tara Lynch instructed the students in Indian dance, as well as teaching yoga to the Grade 5 students.
