“We are friends and allies, who together have built the most productive relationship between any two countries in the world today.”
Cultural exchanges between nations assist in fostering friendship and building amicable relations. It also helps us to understand each other’s culture, develops pride and respect for each other. It was a week to cherish as the kangaroos came calling on GFS. Students of various ages, accompanied by their teachers from the prestigious Shenton College spent their quality time in GFS. They were greeted by teachers and students with open arms. Display boards showcased pictures of culture and heritage of Australia and India.
A special assembly was organized on Rakshabandhan highlighting the bonding and affection of brother and sister. Students of GFS tied rakhi around the wrist of Australian students as a token of love. The week culminated with Australians visiting primary classes. The children decked up in splendid and ethnic attire welcomed them. A hands on activity on state bonanza depicting the heritage and culture of north India was beautifully presented. It was indeed a fabulous show put up by the little ones that brought forth their creativity and innovativeness and it was well appreciated and applauded by children from down under. They were transported to a world of fantasy.
