A taste of the world in Tasmania
Our Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) students in Tasmania recently organised and enjoyed a multicultural lunch with classmates, family and friends.
The Hobart classrooms were brought to life with students dressed in traditional clothes and tables filled with plates of homemade celebrational food from around the world.
The STEPS site is truly a global community with staff and students from many countries abroad including Ethiopia, Iran, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Croatia and New Zealand.
SEE Training Coordinator Jessica Gravell said she loves working in a diverse environment and seeing everyone unintentionally teach each other about their cultures and languages.
“It’s always about food and drink that we learn a lot about their culture. It really brings people together,” she said.
Students enjoyed sharing their foods and explaining what they were and how they are typically eaten.
The diversity of the STEPS community and the opportunity to celebrate our cultures truly creates an enriching learning experience for all involved.
