On April 30, and May 1, W.M. Anderson Primary celebrated Multicultural Day.  On Wednesday, the students learned about various countries such as Japan, Madagascar, Italy, and Costa Rica that included delicious samples of different kinds of foods and beverages associated with the countries.

Some of the tasty foods that were served included rice cakes, tropical fruit, Indonesian chicken, and special blends of fruit juices. 

Students were enlightened about certain facts regarding various countries, such as the fact that Brazil is the largest country in Central America; Hawaii has eight islands, and Honolulu is the capital; and India is the seventh largest country by area. 

On Thursday, each class gave a presentation on their country and performed many dances that were reflective of their country. Lauriell Royster's kindergarten class counted numbers from one to 20 in Japanese while Mrs. Peggy Ouimette's class sung the numbers in Spanish.  The students experienced culture from Finland to Aruba and everywhere in between.

“This type of activity exposes our children, and parents too, to the many actions that are going on in areas beyond their everyday environment and it also lets them explore career choices that will allow them to travel to these exotic locations,” said Principal Dr. Teresa Wright. “Everyone enjoys participating in this event every year and we look forward to the many exciting things we will learn about places outside of South Carolina.”
