As part of Italian week, the students from Pre-Primary to Year 6 at Holy Cross College, participated in a variety of cooking activities. Students had the opportunity to make Italian bread, biscotti, Italian pizza, gnocchi, bruschetta and Italian fruit salad with gelato. The students enjoyed the cooking activities and the Italian food. Meals are a very important part of the Italian culture; usually shared with family and friends. Meals are an opportunity for groups to come together and talk; while enjoying some great food. A big thank you to all the parents that came along and helped with all the cooking activities. We could not have done it without you!
During the week, the children also participated in a hunting the dot competition and won prizes. The children performed role plays, read a PowerPoint Presentation, prayers and quotes from Frederic Ozanam and Oscar Romero as part of the Italian Showcase Assembly.
The children also enjoyed engaging with Italian Culture by playing soccer and bocce.
