Hispanic Day


October 12th, 2017



 The Spanish Department of Clifton Hunter celebrated Día de la Raza on October 12th with its 2nd Hispanic Day.   Students and teachers alike got an opportunity to experience Hispanic culture through displays, dance, music, craft and food.  Parents and students contributed a wide array of typical dishes which students and staff were able to sample.  

Many students donned their national costumes and were on hand to converse with peers about the peculiarities and differences between their countries and the special cultural experiences one can have on a visit to the countries on display.

Countries represented included Venezuela, Cuba, Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Panama and Costa Rica. 

Marta Flores, assistant teacher at John Gray was on hand to demonstrate and perform a typical Nicaraguan dance. 




Students were enthralled and enjoyed this segment which she performed in her national costume.  In addition there was a special treat from Vashti Hurlston, a year 11 students, who performed traditional and popular renditions of select music pieces accompanying herself on the guitar.  She performed on the walkways, in academies and even for her principal in true Mariachi style with her somewhat shy vocalists.

There was a wide variety of food prepared by parents who were eager to participate in this activity.  Many parents were on hand to offer assistance throughout the day and were keen to converse with students in their native tongue.

The event was well received by both staff and students.  It is held every two years and continues to grow with greater input from parents and students who are keen to show off their unique culture.  In the future the Spanish department hopes to engage other stakeholders in the activity which is festive and allows students of Spanish to explore aspects of Spanish culture beyond the classroom setting.

Shaving for a cause!!!!!!!!!!


Many thanks to all of the staff and students involved in the head shave this morning. It was a very positive, productive and humbling experience for all concerned.

Thanks to the security staff who controlled the entry into the hall and Mrs. Rhule who volunteered to support in the hall, very helpful.

The total amount is $2,306 which is a great achievement considering that the funds have come from the generosity of students and staff over a 10 day period. (Last year we raised $1,770). The aim is to increase our awareness, involvement and contributions every year.
