PHOTOS/VIDEO: Chilliwack Secondary students celebrate diversity with Cultural Day

Teens hope multicultural event will inspire other students to host their own cultural day

A multicultural event filled the halls of a Chilliwack high school on Thursday.

Chilliwack Secondary School hosted its first Cultural Day on April 27, organized by the school’s Students of Colour Association.

Many students wore cultural attire that day and the lunchtime event also included a Mehndi table where people got henna tattoos, photo booth, food truck and cultural dancing. A group photo was taken of all the students who wore cultural clothing.

The event was organized by students Zara Shahid, Sara Shahid and Hannah Simmonds.

Simmonds said they want to inspire other schools to do the same.

“A cultural day at school is very beneficial and we hope to share this idea,” she said.
