Dear Parents and Caregivers,
With our College Open Day just behind us, in two weeks time on Saturday 8th September, MAC will be hosting one of our most popular evenings of the year, our Multicultural Night. Multicultural Night is truly one of the highlights of the College year and continues to draw large crowds from both inside and outside our College community. It is a night where we come together to enjoy the various flavours on offer from the food stalls, which represent popular meals from around the globe, followed by a variety of cultural dances and special items performed on stage by our proud students.
Multicultural Night is also one of our biggest fundraising events of the year, and usually all funds raised go towards capital projects that benefit our students. Previously funds raised went towards partially funding the new basketball and volleyball courts and table tennis tables that our students enjoy on a daily basis. This year we have had many requests for the funds to go towards our camps, from Year 5 and 6 to Year 12, especially the Vanuatu Mission trip. Sincere thanks to our Home and School Committee who accepted these requests.
With that said, can I encourage all of our College families to get involved in our Multicultural Night. From helping prepare a meal for the food stalls, to getting your children involved in performing, bringing a group of friends or family on the night or helping with the set-up and pack-up, there is room for everyone to be a part of the night, and we are able to accomplish so much more when we all work together.
Multicultural Night is a wonderful celebration of the cultural, linguistic and national diversity we enjoy here at Macarthur Adventist College and I look forward to seeing you there.
