IT is Cultural Diversity Week at Bendigo Senior Secondary College.

The week is an annual event at BSSC designed to highlight and celebrate the diverse cultures represented at the college, the vibrant language other than English program, and the sense of inclusion fostered by students and staff.

There are several lunchtime events throughout the week, as well as the annual Multicultural Immersion Day for local primary school children.

On Tuesday, 130 primary students from across Bendigo joined students at the BSSC language centre for a day of fun activities facilitated by BSSC’s Aboriginal, Chinese and Karen students.

Wednesday was language day, and featured a celebration of the languages studied at BSSC, with food, cultural activities, dance and music.

Harmony Day included food, live music and inclusion activities in the Ulumbarra Plaza.

The fun continues today from 1pm with a showcase of cuisines and cultures, with food stalls, live music and dance in the Ulumbarra Plaza.
