Mount Claremont Primary


Activity

A lively cultural program ensures that Mount Claremont Primary students celebrate diversity in an authentic and meaningful way. In Term 1 of 2006, 18 Year 6 and 7 students from Beijing, hosted by families in the local community, attended the school and participated in many classes. The Chinese students practised their English-speaking with local students and learned new skills whilst intrinsic learning about cultural differences took place as students interacted with each other.
Curriculum Links: Values 3. Respect and concern for others and their rights (3.2 – Equality; 3.3 – Respect)

Chinese students enjoyed a variety of learning areas, including technology and enterprise, drama, music, art, swimming, gymnastics and sport.

A very successful multicultural activity enjoyed by the Year 2 & 3 students in 2005 was A Trip Around the World. Students each had a passport which they took with them to a range of activity stations represented by different cultures. Parent volunteers helped out on the day to share their backgrounds with international cooking, dancing and artwork.

The Year 3 class is developing links with students from the Perth International School through pen pal activities and exchange visits.
Curriculum Links:
Society and Environment (Culture - Beliefs, Cohesion, Identity; Investigation, Communication and Participation).

A strong emphasis on inclusion is evident at Mount Claremont Primary, with attendance by a student from the Sir David Brand Centre, who is integrated into mainstream lessons at the school. The school has a rich history of integrating students with special needs.
Curriculum Links: Values 3. Respect and concern for others and their rights (3.4 – Open learning environment; 3.3 – Individual differences)
