WMS Sports This Week
WHS Sports this week
Passport to the Globe
Students from four different steel pan classes will be performing a concert with a variety of music from around the globe in the auditorium. Special guest Steve Lawrie, originally from South Africa, who built his career in steel pan building, tuning, performing, and arranging music, will be joining the concert.
Culinary Arts (Family and Consumer Sciences)- Advanced Global Nutrition and Cuisine Class
Following the concert, we will have a Cultural Cuisine Food Stations set-up, presented by our Advanced Global Nutrition and Culinary students and the Foodies Rock Program. Each team chose a country to research, and from there developed a recipe. The teams will be preparing their recipe for guests to sample. They are also decorating the tables with artifacts that represent aspects of the culture of the country they chose to study and will have some interesting facts to share. Be sure to come hungry for good food and knowledge!
WHS Clubs and World Language
Also following the concert, student lead clubs and organizations, as well as the World Language Department, will be representing different cultures around the world. Come enjoy learning a new language, a cultural dance, and about the many cultures within our school and community!
