On Sunday 12th November, Community Language Schools SA was part of the 2023 Multicultural Festival that took place in Victoria Square/ Tarntanyangga. It was a beautiful day celebrating interculturalism through respect and understanding.

Over 10,200 people attended throughout the day. 82 students across 8 CLSs helped us in representing the Community Language sector. Performances from the Overseas Chinese Association of SA, South Australia Tamil School and Sinhala Buddhist School demonstrated the influence CLSs have on the future of multicultural South Australia.

Students and volunteers from the Bangla School, Uyghur Language School of SA, SA Chinese Community Language School, South Australia Tamil School and Kenya Swahili of Adelaide Inc paraded through the crowd in traditional dress.

With the help of our volunteers, CLSSA also held an engagement space where children were encouraged to complete activities and get stamps on their ‘CLSSA Passport.’ Those who collected all four stamps were entered into a competition – we had over 100 entries!

Congratulations to the South Australia Tamil School who won an iPad in the competition. Also, congratulations to the 5 children who won full scholarships to the CLS of their choice for 2024.

A special thank you to the volunteers from our CLS who helped us to manage the engagement space and roving parade. Your passion and commitment to the sector is deeply appreciated.

We had a fantastic time and look forward to doing it all again next year. To find out more about Multicultural Festivals and how you can get involved next year, visit the Department of the Premier and Cabinet’s website.
