International Children’s Festival
24 May, 2017
The International Children’s Festival which has been taking place in Melbourne since 2002 is an extension of the 23rd of April National Sovereignty and Children’s Day celebrated in Turkey which draws children’s dance groups from over 120 countries around the world. The festival in Melbourne brings together the children from Turkish schools as well as children's groups from various ethnic backgrounds. As outlined by the Association of International Children’s Festival organizers, the International Children's Festival in Melbourne tries to diminish the existing misunderstanding and intolerance among different communities of diverse racial, religious and cultural backgrounds by providing an occasion for the children to get together and help promote and foster collective consciousness towards a uniting Australian cause. In the past, the Victorian School of Languages has successfully been represented in this festival. This year, we have had more time to prepare with 3 dance groups from 3 different VSL Centres displaying excellent performances drawing great admiration from the audience and organizers alike. Our contribution in strengthening the Children’s Festival with our support and participation with our dance groups were specifically acknowledged and appreciated by the Festival organizers and we have officially been invited to take part in next years’ festival with more groups. We would like to thank the following teachers and students for their hard work and fantastic performances in this important and meaningful event: 1) Macedonian teacher/ dance instructor Ms. Vesna Damcevska and students (Keilor Downs VSL Centre) 2) Bosnian parent/dance instructor Ms. Senada Ekic and students (Creekside VSL Centre) 3) Punjabi teacher/dance instructor Ms. Shally Khanna and students (Hampton Park VSL Centre).
