DVSS students celebrate diversity during International Week

    Next week the Drumheller Valley Secondary School will be given the chance to learn about different cultures around the globe during International Education Week.
    On November 15 between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. students from the DVSS will be displaying posters, artwork, cuisine, music, and more to one another.
    Each presentation will delve into the culture, celebrations, history, and sites of various nations.
    There will also be culinary samples in what Annette Waiboer, Career Counsellor at the DVSS, describes as “an assortment of international cuisine.”
    The international students will feature prominently in the celebrations. One of the students from South Korea will be giving a drumming demonstration.
    Local students will be participating as well. Each class will research and create a display of a different culture.
    The DVSS began to hold the annual event seven years ago.
    “It’s educational,” explained Waiboer. “We showcase other cultures, diversity, and similarities with our own.”
