Diversity Day Educates about Multiculturalism

Diversity Day is a way of showing children about different faiths and different cultures, so that they learn about them and their significance from a very young age. It has been running for the last six years in a way for pupils to get a glimpse into the life and times of different religions, faiths and cultures.

600 Pupils Got Involved

The day itself was hosted by East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, where 600 Primary Six pupils from Carolside, Netherlee, Busby and Calderwood Lodge in the Glasgow area attended the event.

The event also includes a number of activities designed to bring together children of many different cultures including trying on clothing styles from different faiths and cultures, and learning how they say ‘hello’ or ‘goodbye’ or how they show respect.

 

Different is Good

A lot of teachers believe it is a great way of showing the pupils everything they have in common with other people around the well, as well as what makes them different. It teaches children that different is often very healthy, it is not something to be frightened about or something that should be ignored.
